Can somebody please help me interpret my liver profile result

HBsAg = reactive
SGOT = 33.0 u/l ( 0-40 )
SGPT = 18.0 u/l ( 0-38 )
ALK Phs = 33.0 u/l ( 9-35)
GGTP = 25.3 u/l ( 0-45 )
LDH = 120.6 u/l ( 80 - 285)
Crea = 1.0 mg/dl ( 0.9 - 1.50)

26yo in Phillipines and surprised by HBsAg reactive usually means chronic HepB.  

You need to follow-up with HepB panels and HBV DNA to find out your HepB status.  Also read "peachy125" post on similiar issues:

Loads of thanks for the immediate response. I will take the other hepB screenings tomorrow as well as the HBV DNA test that you suggest. . .  :)

I have also red peachy's post and i really wanna thank you for that.
I'm just a bit frustrated coz' I'm doing good at school. :(
and i really hope to work as a caregiver, but it seems that i should take care
of myself first now.

anyway may God bless us all, and thanks for this wonderful site.

Nursing is a profession that does involve some invasive procedures.  At your stage of career development, is a career shift still possible?

Best.

I think i really need to shift career again, i took up medical related course  
mainly because i wanna be knowledgeable in many diseases specially the one which i have now.

today i will take the other test and i still hope for a better results, if there is? I'm just wondering what can i expect in my case, since i think i'm a chronic carrier, will i ever get rid of this virus in me? and can i be treated with medications?

again loads of thanks to all of you guys.  :)

>>>can i be treated with medications?

Yes.

>>>will i ever get rid of this virus in me?

Some patients achieve that goal, most do not but still live a full life.

I just got back from my hbt liver ultrasound and the results states that:

liver is normal in size, no focal lesions are seen
The hepatic borders are smooth and sharp. There is no fluid at the hepatorenal fossa.

the gall bladder measures about 48x12 mms. with an anechoic lumen and distinct walls.
no stones no masses re seen. There is no fluid at the gall bladder fossa.

Impression:
Liver,gall bladder,billiary tree - normal sonologically

while on my hepB panel result is not yet released.  The doc. said that my liver is fine, but still i'm worried. can this ultrasound result be reliable too? i mean for me to not worry much that i may end up having liver cirrohsis or something . . .
