It is best to consult a hepatologist for initiating the correct treatment. Antiviral therapy is indicated in people who are chronically infected and have persistently elevated SGPT which is a marker of liver damage, and HBV DNA levels. Routine follow ups are very essential along with regular blood monitoring to see if the virus is still active in your body and liver function tests to know how well your liver is working. Consult a hepatologist and get your doubts clarified. Keep me posted.
Best wishes and luck!
your hbsag level is still too high to have high chances to clear hbv by pegintf if you are hbeag negative, but if you are hbeag positive the chances are very high
the only treatment to achieve very high hbv clearance rates is sequential treatment by tenofovir and then pegintf add on, if hbeag negative tenofovir needs years to rescue your immune response to hbv and have clearance by pegintf add on while hbeag pos can start combo right away
so check your hbeag, possibly quantitative and not qualitative and repost so we can suggest, also testing your hbv genotype is important, a and b have highest pegintf response, d, c and e the worst
