I have Hepatitis B and doctor told me it changes from active to non active. I did some test and result is Hepatitis Be Ag --NonReactive Hepatitis Be Ab -- Nonreactive Hepatitis B Surgace AB--NonReact Hepatitis V DNA/PCR QT(Ultra) 148 . Does this result I still have Hepatitis B or the virus is still inside my body. What does that mean, please explain to me . thanks,.

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your surface antigen is reactive, then you do have inactive disease. This will need careful follow up since that can change.
