What should we do?

We recently apply for life insurance and discover via the blood  screening that we tested positive for hepatitis. My wife is 46 and I am 47. So far, we feel normal and healthy. We showed the test results to our family doctor and was told by him to not worry because we are just carriers? Here are the results for both of us. What course of action should we do?

                                Wife                Myself

Hepatitis A AB, Total           Reactive            Non-reactive
Hepatitis B Surface antibody QL Reactive            Non-reactive
Hepatitis B Surface antigen     None detected       Present
Hepatitis B core AB Total       Reactive            Reactive
Hepatitis C antibody            Non-reactive        Non-reactive
AST                             21                  61 (High)
ALT                             18                  48 (High)


We are very concerned and thanks in advance for any reply.
