hbv-dna viral

Dec 20, 2009

I am a positive Hepa B. i was diagnosed to have 35,610 IU/Ml hbv-dna viral load. What does it mean? Prothrombin Time Control is 11.1 secs; and sgpt (alt) 26 IU/Ml; alpha feto-protein (AFP) 1.23IU/Ml. My other labs are HBsAG -reactive; HBeAG - nonreactive; and HBe Antibody Reactive. What shall I do?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It means that you are likely chronically infected with HBV. You will need to consult with a liver specialist to determine whether treatment for HBV is indicated at this time.
