Do I need treatment for Hepatitis B? My test data are as follows:
Hipatitis B Surface Antibody QL: Non-reactive
Hipatitis B core AB Total: Reactive
Hipatitis BE Antigen: Non-reactive
Hipatitis BE Antibody: Reactive
Hipatitis B Surface Antigen: Reactive
Hipatitis B Viral DNA
HEP B Viral DNA IU/ML: 213000
HEP B Viral DNA COPIES/ML: 589632
AST: 24 U/T
ALLT: 22 U/T
Alpha-Fetoprotien tumor marker: 2.2 ng/mL
Liver function: Normal
I would say TREAT since the goal of treatment for chronic e-antigen negative HepB individuals is to supress the DNA to undectable. Your high DNA indicate that you have a active disease. ALT tends to fluctuate so normal range doesn't always mean that there is no liver cell damage.
