if you stop it you are going to face serious damage, you are lucky your alt are increasing this means your are clearing a lot of virus and by few months hbvdna will be undetectable and all the liver damage you had in your life will start slowly repairing

by the way you are hbeag pos if genotype A or D you have a chance of definitive cure, hbsag will lower, by 3 years there is already 16% clearance of hbsag

genotype A has the best response

alt are a problem only if you have cirrhosis and they go over 1000, i dont think you have cirrhosis and you will never reach alt 1000 but if so lucky that s enough to cure hbv when hbvdna und
