clarification
Jul 30, 2005

i was diagnosed 3 yrs.ago. positive on hepa b, my current sgpt count is 41. how serious is this? and what are the necessary medicines to be taken?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would need many more blood tests to give you helpful information. Your SGPT is minimally abnormal and not concerning at all.

I need the results of hepatitis B surface antigen, surface antibody, core antibody; HBV DNA and hep E antigen if your surface antigen is positive, and liver function tests. Dr. McGovern
