Response from Dr. Taylor
This indicates a chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Next best steps are to have HBV DNA (viral load) and ALT (a liver injury blood test) checked, along with test for HIV and hepatitis C. These results along with findings from your physical exam and medical history will help your doctor determine the best medical therapy. Other ways to help the liver include not using alcohol, not smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight.
