my diagnosis
Feb 23, 2006

Dear Dr McGovern, I am a chronic carrier for 20 years from my mother. My diagnosis is HbsAg positive, Anti-Hbc positive and Anti-Hbe negative. My SGOT is 27 and my SGPT is 40. Is tis worrying as five months ago my SGOT was 11 and ny SGPT 25. Is there a way to make them lower?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would only suggest that you be tested for HBV DNA to be certain that you do not have chronic hepatitis B e antigen negative infection.

However, I suspect that you are an "inactive carrier" and do not need treatment.

Dr. M

Transmission Question. Please clarify... Thank you.
help! Scared out of our minds! Very Urgent!
