Response from Dr. McGovern
You may have chronic hepatitis B but I cannot tell how active it is without further testing of your liver function tests and your HBV DNA. If your DNA is elevated you have active disease. If your HBV DNA is not detectable, then you have inactive disease. The positive e antibody is good news.
