kindly pls interpret this result, and what am i going to do? thanks
Response from Dr. McGovern
You are chronically infected based on the reactive surface antigen test (HBsAg). I would not expect the anti-HBe and the HBeAg to both be reactive so that is somewhat peculiar.
I would proceed with serial monitoring of liver function tests and check your HBV DNA level to get more information about the activity of your disease.
You will also want to get hepatitis A vaccine if you have not been exposed in the past.
