hi guys! I'm new of this site and I have hepaB also, I discovered it last october 2004 until now I carried the virus.Since in the beginning my Doctor said that I am in acute stage and sad to say that I did not cure I belong to chronic and Inactive carrier, my doctor did not give me any medication co'z according to him my anti-bodies is building-up to fight against the virus.
Last April 2011, I have lab test and these are the results:
I think SGPT stands for ALT and it is indeed good.
The HBsAg results cannot be called increasing when you only have two results, this might me a mere fluctuation as HBV infection is an ongoing process, so don't get stressed about this.
There are a few scenarios in your case.
Since your HBsAg is not high you might try interferon treatment to push it down even further and hope for a complete clearance of HBV. However with your good ALT result, no drastic damage on liver (ultrasound, you should do the fibroscan/biopsy to get a full picture) some doctors will advise a passive strategy monitoring your status and I think your doc is taking that course. ALT is a very strong predictor of interferon response - your result is very good in terms of liver status but its not placing you good for response to IFN.
Post your HBV DNA quantity and do a fibroscan/biopsy. I think experienced people here will advise you more.
