Do I need treatment for Hepatitis B?
Typically treatment is considered in chronic HBV infection (HBsAg positive for more than six months) who have evidence of active virus replication (HBeAg and HBV DNA positive) and active liver disease (elevated serum ALT concentration and chronic hepatitis on liver biopsy).
It is difficult to answer your question without a liver biopsy. I would suggest that you discuss whether this is the next step with your gastroenterologist.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
