viral load and treatment

Jan 18, 2008

Good day doc, with a result like this HBV-DNA DETECTED IS GREATER THAN 110,000,000 IU/ml (>640,200,000 copies/ml), should treatment be considered? all our other hepa b tests are positive too. I'm 20 years old and my brother is 18.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

the viral load result does not by itself answer the question about treatment. You need to be evaulated by a liver specialist to answer the question.
