HBsAg reactive h4270 count Anti Hbs non reactive HbeAg non reactive Anti Hbe reactive Anti Hbc IgM non reactive Anti Hbc IgG reactive What does this mean?

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your HBsAg (hepatitis B surface antigen) is reactive, then you have chronic hepatitis B infection. Now you need to know if it is active. You should get HBV DNA testing to see if the virus is in your bloodstream. I would also check liver function tests (ALT/AST)

confused. please help.
Elevated liver enzymes, sustiva or hepatitis C?
