with your low level viremia i would not advocate antiviral therapy.  Your liver chemistry tests are normal which is good.  your platelet count is somewhat on the low side however which could mean that you have advanced fibrosis.  You should have an abdominal imaging study to rule our cirrhosis and portal hypertension.

Ive just have a look inside the ultrasound envelope and found a doctor interruption.

The liver has normal Sonographic appearance with no evidence of Hepatic cirrhosis or definite focal liver lesion. There is mild Splenomegaly measuring 14cm. No ascites"
