HBV Viral Load
Oct 14, 2017
Is it normal if the result is 170 million IU/mL
Response from Dr. Holodniy
There is no normal HBV viral load. You are either infected or not infected with HBV. Although you don't indicate why the test was performed, a positive HBV viral load usually indicates chronic HBV infection. That HBV viral load would be considered a high viral load. Treatment would be indicated at this time.
