im carrier for Hepatitis B and not infected. my report says the percentage is 253 for "Hepatitis Bs Antegen, serum level".
what does that mean and what should i do to clear it..?
Response from Dr. McGovern
The number itself has not much meaning. As a carrier, there is nothing I would recommend to "clear it". You are not a treatment candidate, and hopefully one day your immune system will clear it spontaneously.
I would avoid excessive alcohol, which suppresses the immune system.
Hep B positive?
Hepatitis B or C?
