Response from Dr. McGovern

You will need further testing. It appears that you are a chronic carrier of hepatitis B. However, you will need testing of your hepatitis B DNA to see if you have virus in your bloodstream. Your liver function tests appear to be normal although you need to check against the reference values in the particular laboratory where you got tested.

You will need further counseling by your physician once you get your virus tests back. Dr. McGovern
