Hbs-Ag reactive person. History of non reactive Hbs-Ag. Medication?

Hi doc! I m XXXX, 24, I m asking if there is a way or medication regarding from being a reactive Hbs-Ag to become a non-reactive one. I was diagnose before from a non-reactive one 7 years ago, and I thought I was transmitted with a Hbs-Ag virus if that test really true. I was planning to take a 2nd opinion from the other laboratory. Please consider my concern. Thanks and God bless!

Individuals who remain HBsAg positive for at least six months are considered to be hepatitis B carriers. Carriers of the virus may have chronic hepatitis B, which would be reflected by elevated serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels and inflammation of the liver, as revealed by biopsy. Carriers who have seroconverted to HBeAg negative status, in particular those who acquired the infection as adults, have very little viral multiplication and hence may be at little risk of long-term complications or of transmitting infection to others.

You should get your assay for hepatitis B virus infection for proper evaluation of your condition.
