Response from Dr. McGovern

It is difficult to help you with these laboratories. You need to be tested for Hepatitis B surface antigen and for HBV DNA (viral load). Then you should discuss the results with your physician. Your liver function tests are somewhat abnormal so I do think you should follow up on cause of hepatitis.

HBV-DNA viral load
