Hi, infections can affect the liver. Hope a hepatitis panel has been done to rule out a hepatitis infection. Sometimes the medications used can also elevate the liver enzymes. So, if he does not have symptoms of liver disease like jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever, I would advise you to wait for now and repeat the test after four weeks to s...

Hi, your HBsAg levels are persisting. Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) level of less than 1 s/c is considered negative, while a level more than 5 s/c is considered positive.As HepB Core IgM values are low, it implies the IgG values are high. So, to sum up HBsAg is reactive and HBsAb negative, HepB Core IgG is positive so you are in chronic state. But as th...

Hi, your Hbe antigen values are going down, which is good. Also your liver enzymes are declining indication less damage to the liver. You will need to check the antibody levels also. Anti-HBs a level of greater than 10-12 mIU/mL is protective. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
