My ALT is 60 and GGt is 70.

B).Can you please advise what I need to do?
C). Since my IgM is Negative shall assume my infection is more than six month old?
d). Is it good sign to have Anti-Hbe
Response from Dr. McGovern
It appears that you have had past hepatitis B infection since your core and surface antibodies are positive. HOwever, you appear to have cleared your infection.
I am uncertain why your liver function tests are positive. I would ask your doctor to check for hepatitis C and other causes of liver disease.
