Response from Dr. McGovern

You have evidence of chronic HBV infection. However, I don't know if it is active or inactive because you need to have a test for HBV DNA. If there is no virus in your blood you have are an inactive carrier.

The rest of your tests are negative. You should be vaccinated against hepatitis A.
