Response from Dr. McGovern

Being an inactive carrier is a good thing.

You just need careful follow-up to be sure that your disease stays inactive.

I would keep alcohol intake to a minimum and avoid immunosuppressant drugs if possible - like steroids.

Cure as a treatment goal for chronic hepatitis B?
