HBV Untreated

Hi, I am new to this forum and would like some good advice. Here is my story. I live in the USA (Indiana). I was diagnosed with HBV in Feb. 2009. In may of 2009 I was prescribed baraclude .5mg once every day. I took the medicine until December 2009 and stopped taking it because I could no longer afford it. It was costing me about $850 per month. So, I haven't taken anything in about 11 months and I recently had a liver function test. These are my results:  Globulin 2.3 g/dl

stoping an antiviral without a exit strategy (e.g. add interferon ...) can be dangerous.

what was your HVB DNA levels at the start of antiviral at stop point and how is today?
