Treatment - ?? Medicine - ?? how long - ??

Response from Dr. McGovern

All these numbers tell me is that you have probable chronic infection - if you have been known to be infected for more than 6 months.

If so, you will need liver function tests over time to determine the activity of your disease. If elevated, your doctor may want to pursue treatment. Therapy will continue until your virus is suppressed and your E antigen is lost and your E antibody is formed.
