|Concerned what should I do
Mar 18, 2012
Just found out last year that I have chronic hep b and viral load was 9k with ALT of 18 now it is at 551k with alt of 44 should I start with the therapy or should I wait to get a liver biopsy. Can I still expect to live a long normal life
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would follow your LFTs to see if they become more abnormal over time and then consider a liver biopsy.
