Response from Dr. Taylor

This means you have chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Ideal next steps include getting tested for HIV and hepatitis C, discontinuing alcohol and tobacco use if you use, and seeing if you can access a hepatitis B physician. Talk with her/him about possible treatment with antiviral pills, and getting household and sexual contacts testes and if not infected, vaccinated.
