Response from Dr. McGovern

There numbers appear to be ranges for the laboratory and not necessarily reflective of your results, which are usually expressed as a single number.

The main thing to follow is HBV DNA - I don't see a result before treatment so cannot comment.

Inactive HBV but sgpt abnormal
Should I be tested for Hep C
