Response from Dr. Taylor
What I can tell you from these results is that you have chronic hepatitis B infection. It would be optimal to be followed by a doctor from now on, throughout the course of your life, for care do this infection. Hepatitis B can change in our bodies over time.
You don't have a very recent hepatitis C or A infection. If you may have had a past exposure ask your doctor about getting tested for an older infection. If you do not have hepatitis A see if you can get vaccinated against it.
