Response from Dr. Taylor
Yes I would get your Hepatitis B DNA checked, along with your ALT, and HIV if possible. Knowing these results and reviewing them with a doctor can help you to get a plan in place to keep you healthy. I understand this can be scary, but getting evaluated and possibly treated can help you be the healthiest you can be.
