hepa B
Sep 3, 2006

I had been infected by hepa B as the result of the test indicated. That was when I was 20 years old. I'm 31 now. I want to know my Hepa B condition now. What can you suggest?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would get a full panel of hepatitis B testing including viral load and consider a liver biopsy to assess the extent of liver damage.
