I'am a chronic or acute patient?what should i do to be clear with this?Is there any way to be clear with HBSAG? Looking forward for your answer.Thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

You have evidence of past infection with hepatitis A.

You also have evidence of chronic HBV infection. I am hopeful that it is inactive infection. The way you can figure that out is to get a HBV DNA level - if undetectable, you are an inactive carrier.
