HBV lab results

Apr 8, 2007

Please could you tell me if my viral load is low or high. My HBV DNA is 80,000 copies/ml. My HB e AG is negative. My HB e AB is positive and my HB S AG positive. I know I'm chronic carrier since I got when I was born. Is it possible that I have pre-core mutant HBV? my ALT and AST are normal and I'm 29 years old.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That viral load is low. The mutant test is not one that is commercially available to determine the answer to your question.

CD4 percent "normal"
