Please advice
Dec 29, 2009

Im 24 year old male and I infected with HBV from past 8 years I just done my blood test recently Hbsag+, HBEAG -, and LFT is normal range. Could you please suggest it sounds like good and it is compulsory to do the blood test every 6 months? Should I need treatment for this?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You need more testing for HBV DNA to see if you have active or inactive infection.
