Please help me with these HBV test results
HepB Surface antigen: Positive
HepB Surface AB: Negative
HepB e Antigen: Negative
HebB e AB: Positive
Liver Functions : NORMAL
DNA PCR levels detectable but low
Am I considered inactive carrrier?
Thank you and Dr Dieterich for all your help!
Response from Dr. McGovern
It appears that you are an inactive carrier in a low replication phase: you have surface antigen but you are e antibody positive and e antigen negative with low viral levels. That is great.
You continue to need monitoring however to be certain that your disease does not become activated.
