Response from Dr. McGovern

There is nothing "dangerous" here. It simply reflects that you are a chronic carrier of hepatitis B with excellent viral suppression since you told us before your virus was controlled with medications. It would be even better if your e antigen would turn negative, but they may still come with time.

I would stay on the medication with the close follow-up with your physician and continue to monitor your bloods for loss of e antigen. Good luck!
