Thank you for your help
Response from Dr. McGovern
For your hepatitis B, you have evidence of HBsAg which means you have chronic infection. However, I don't know if it is active without testing your HBV DNA - a measure of active virus in your bloodstream.
Your HCV antibody is nonreactive which means that you were not infected with Hepatitis C in the past.
