Is my wife a chronic carrier, is she a infectious carrier, What treatment would be appropriate for her.

Please need your answer to help us.

Thanks.

Response from Dr. McGovern

From what I can decipher, I suspect your wife has Hepatitis B surface antigen Hepatitis B e antigen Hepatitis B core antibody

If this is correct, then your wife is a chronic carrier of hepatitis B. The next step is to have a good physical examination and laboratories for hepatitis B DNA (viral load) and liver function tests (ALT and AST). Recommendations for treatment are usually made over time after serial monitoring.
