Response from Dr. McGovern
You need to have a hepatitis B surface antigen test. If reactive, then you have chronic hepatitis B infection. You will then need a HBV DNA test to see if you have active or inactive disease.
If nonreactive, then I suspect you are doing well and the anti-HBe test may be falsely reactive.
