& Second Dr Suggest me wait for 1 month to take any treatment after one month repeat the test for AVH-B & LFT

Presently I am following second Dr.

Please suggest me.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your laboratory results would suggest acute HBV infection. It is possible that you will clear the infection on your own and not require HBV treatment. It is not unreasonable to wait a month or so and repeat the lab tests to see what your status is.

Viral load
"blip" or not?
