hellow stef.i am from Philippines, can you help me read this test i got?
sgpt-alt 68.0 u/l
hbeag II .139 NON-REACTIVE
the method used for hbv dna viral load pcr is cobas taqman hbv test.
the detectable range with this method is 6~110,000,000 iu/ml
the qualification is homogenous for all hbv genotypes tested.this was last feb. 2, 2013 result then at may 2013 my sgpt-alt was 35 u/l.
stef kindly help me to understand this things. thanks a lot for your coming respond to it....expect for your reply soon....
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
