Why Persistently raised esr and crp

Since 2007 I am watching my esr and crp raised. Yesterday too they were raised esr 30 and crp 13.8. I am hbeag negative on antivirals. DNA zero I suppose.
This is big concern as it denotes ongoing inflammation in body. Can someone explain the situation?

It could be totally unrelated to Hep B. Lot of people have elevated CRP, especially if they have Heart Disease or GI issues like Irritable Bowel etc in their family.

Thanks for your feedback but I am neither diabetes nor heart disease or IBS or any other chronic ailments. I am little obese with moderate fatty liver.

anything even aging increases inflammation, unrelated to hbv.you can find tons of videos on youtube on how to deal with inflammation and prevent serious diseases that come with inflammation such as stroke, heart failure and so on and usually it is what you eat to make such a state of inflammation.
Ford Brewer MD MPH has an mazing chanel on youtube about these topics and how to deal with it, your glucose levels (not fasting) and your insulin resistence are the most probable cause

Thanks Steff. Will certainly check those vdos but for now I am 36 y/o. It's been 12 years since I got to know about my seropositivity. But when i was 26-27yrs, then 30-31yrs my CRP levels were raised then too. Its quite persistent. My BMI gradually increased from 25 to 33 currently in 10years and I am 5.10feet tall 105kg. I am a non diabetic with little deranged lipid profile. Insulin resistance as of now is not visible on me. Yes fatty liver is always moderate not mild. Hbv DNA zero since on taf.
All I am forced to think is the hbv as root cause because 3years back on liver biopsy things were not good despite hbeag negative so that I had to start tdf.
Please add little more of your thoughts.
