i was diagnosed with hepatitis b in february this year.
my lab results were extremely high, alt/ast hovering around 3000 hence my doctor prescribed me tenofovir.
in the span of 9 months, i went down for blood tests in 3 occasion.
Here are my blood test results :
March 2017 : ALT/AST are still slightly elevated, but only in the range of 100s compared to the 3000 i had back in February.
May 2017 : ALT/AST has became normal(17 for ALT/19 for AST) , DNA viral load came back with the result of "This assay cannot accurately quantify HBV DNA below this level". Hepatitis B surface antibody NEGATIVE. Hepatitis B e surface antigen NEGATIVE/Hepatitis B e surface antibody POSITIVE
August 2017 : ALT/AST normal, Hepatitis B surface antigen Negative;Hepatitis B antibody Negative; DNA Viral Load - UNDETACTABLE . Hepatitis B e surface antigen NEGATIVE/Hepatitis B e surface antibody POSITIVE
I am still on medication and i will have another blood test in December. Im puzzled, what stage am i at ? Am i considered chronically infected as i did not develop hepatitis b surface antibody over 6months?
