Hep B lab question

Jul 8, 2012

In my lab results I have: Hep B viral DNA QT =33400000H <20IU/ml Hep B viral DNA QT =194000000H <116copies/ml and HBV denotype D precore mutations detected - C1858T BCP mutations detected Please, help me to understand my lab results

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why these tests were obtained, but it appears you have chronic infection with HBV. These tests don't indicate how long you have been infected or the extent of any liver damage. I suggest you consult with a liver specialist to determine if additional tests or treatment is indicated at this time.
