Pediatrician 's  Response
a positive rsult doesnot mean anything. it can be a result of a chronic infection & you might not be having anything now. get anti HbeAg done to get to know if you are active or not. before that get all the tests repeated in a proper reliable lab even if it is expensive. its worth doing it.
