treatment decision are not made only based on viral load.
You should check:
- HBsAg quantitative,
- also you should check the liver condition by Fibroscan or biopsy (if Fibroscan is not availble in you area),
- also to specify the HBeAg (is is positive or negative).
- also will be better to check the ATL and AST levels,
- also some other liver related tests could help (e.g. ALKP or Total Bilirubin ..) but this are secondary tests, main test are the first 3 that I mentioned.
