Your HBsAg quantitive is so low. Is it becasue HDV coinfection that HDV suppress HBsAg release or it's not related ?
With such low HBsAg and high ALT you have great chance to clear HBs on peginf but your advanced fibrosis may be a problem. Not sure if you need tenofovir if your hbv dna is close to undetectable now.
Also why both HBe and antiHBe are negative ? I thought one is always positive for chronic carriers ? Also anti-HBc is always possitive in chronic carriers too. So your tests look very uncommon.
Maybe some more experienced users can comment this, theres many questions here.

AST - 155.0
HDV - 11831083copies/ml, 3479731IU/ml

my HBsAg is low. i think HBsAg is related for HDV. why my HDV not related for HBsAg?

Of course HDV can not exist without HBV.
It's important if your HBsAg is quantitive result ? If yes, it's very good result but not sure also if advanced fibrosis doesn't mess something here.
Let's wait for other comments.
