I have made a HBV PCR test and the result was 1,260 IU/mL Is that result normal??

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is a very low HBV viral load result, but it is not normal. You don't indicate why that test was done, but it likely means you have chronic HBV infection. You should consult with a liver specialist as to whether you need treatment or not.
