Just my opinion.

Whether to treat when your viral load is 2660 iu/ml I think will attract different answers from different doctors. Some guidelines seem to regard > 20,000 iu/ml as high, others regard 2,000 iu/ml as high to require consideration for treatment. Doctors will also take your ALT into account.

Certainly, I think other factors need to be considered, such as age, history, HbeAg status, and the current state of your liver through a Fibroscan or biospy. A quantitative HBsAg may influence your choice of treatment if treatment is needed.
