Mar 18, 2008

hi - hope you can help - was diagnosed in 2006 with hep at that time viral load was 74300000000 per m/l in 2006 19000 per m/l and today 300 per m/l. I was told i am still antegen positive though - what does this mean? thanks

This means that you have chronic infection. However, your viral load is so low that you now fall in a category of possible "inactive carrier". You will continue to need serial follow-up to see the trend of your DNA level.
