Response from Dr. McGovern

Your profile looks good so far. You have chronic infection, but your HBe antibody is positive and your liver function tests are normal. I suspect you are an inactive carrier. One additional test would be a HBV DNA, but if you can't get that, I would suspect that your disease is inactive.
