i, I am not sure if you are still active on this site or not, I just have a question that I wanted to get your opinion on. I have read an hbeag positive person is much more likely to transmit the virus to another person than an hbeab positive person and if a hbeab positive person with precore mutant transfer the virus to another there is a high possibility of fuliment hepatitis to occur, but rarely if ever chronicity?

Hi, In 2011 I found Hbs Positive while donating blood. Than I went to Liver Specialist he suggested me few test the results are SGPT Alt- 25.0, HbeAg- No reactive (0.448), HbsAg-Positive(3362.95), HBV DNA- 1129 copies/ml. After seeing my test report he just suggested me some vitamins. After two years of my first test I retest again with the result SGPT Alt- 31, HbeAg- Non reactive (0.371), HbsAg- Positive (2595.28), HBV DNA- Below 116 Copies/ml. After that I dont take any test. So, What should I do now? please advice me.

I am a health educator (hepatitis and viral disease) and was referred to you by a MedHelp user. There is a fibroscan device available in Los Angeles that is a great alternative to liver biopsy to determine fibrosis staging. I am in the Los Angeles area (CA). Please let me know if this information would be helpful to you. The information site is http://www.fibroscanlosangeles.com
