Response from Dr. McGovern

I cannot tell if you need treatment since there is no measurement of the virus in your blood - eg a HBV DNA level; also there are no liver function tests to determine if there is any evidence of activity.

The medicine your doctor prescribed is not active against the Hepatitis B virus.
