this is the result of my son's hepa profile; HBsAg:169.6 reactive, Anti-HBs:2.00 non-reactive, Anti-HBe:1.16 Non-reactive, Anti-HBc IgM:0.028 Non-reactive, Anti-HBc IgG:0.016 Reactive. Is this dangerous to him?what is the best way to cure him?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Frankly you need more testing to determine if he has virus (active infection) or no virus (inactive carrier). You need a HBV DNA test and also liver function tests. Depending on the results, your son may need a biopsy to determine if he has disease.
