Response from Dr. McGovern

If this is the first time you have been tested, you should have your surface antigen rechecked in six months. If still positive, then you do have chronic HBV infection.. You have a normal ALT which is reassuring that hopefully you don't have liver disease. You should also have follow up of your ALT as well. To know if you have virus in your blood, you need a HBV DNA test.
