Reactive Hep B
Aug 8, 2008

My wife is Hepatitis B carrier. And it is reactive according to some medical test. Please tell me how can it be cured?

Response from Dr. McGovern

First you need to know if she is an active or inactive carrier. She will need further testing of HBV DNA to see if her infection is active.

You should be checked for hepatitis B as well and if you have not been infected, you should be immunized.
