Response from Dr. McGovern

You have evidence of prior exposure to hepatitis B and probable chronic infection. You will need testing of HBV DNA to see if you have virus in your blood to see if you are an active or inactive carrier. You will also need serial testing to better determine your true hepatitis B status...Your liver function tests are near normal, but these will also need follow-up.
