Response from Dr. McGovern

From the results I see here, you have HB e antigen negative infection with minimally abnormal liver function tests. You will want to continue monitoring your LFTs along with your HBV DNA testing. If you do not have any virus in your blood, then you are an inactive carrier.

If you do have virus by HBV DNA testing, then you may have active disease and will need ongoing monitoring and possibly a liver biopsy in the future.
