Dear Santosh Shah:
I appreciate your questions and the detailed information you have described.  While it is always difficult for me to make comments about specific cases, I will try to make some comments that I hope you will find helpful.
First and foremost, I cannot state with certainty that you have an active, replicating hepatitis B infection.  Any patient who is hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis B e antigen positive and who has elevated liver enzymes may well have a replicating infection.  However, the hepatitis B status can change over time.  Therefore we would want to know the status of your hepatitis B serology
