sorry but these tests say very little if not nothing on a chronic hbv carrier.hbvdna is uselful only to measure if antivirals are working, hbsag but only quantitative is usefull to have an idea of infected cells in the liver, stage and prediction of response to therapies, immune system response, fibroscan to detect liver damage

so you need fibroscan and hbsag quantity in iu/ml to say something
