Thanks Doc

Response from Dr. McGovern

By these blood tests, I can tell that you have hepatitis B e antigen negative infection. You have hepatitis B viremia, but your levels are low. This can be seen in hepatitis B e antigen negative infection.

Whether you should be treated or not will also depend on the level of your ALT - liver function test and your liver biopsy results. You will want to discuss this thoroughly with your physician.

Dr. McGovern
