Hi,

'HBsAg positive ' only with all else negative means a carrier status.(inactive virus).
Suggest checking all family members for the same & immunise them.
No specific treatment required.
Just review with your doctor at regular intervals

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
Hello,
Individuals who remain HBsAg positive for at least six months are considered to be hepatitis B carriers.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.
However you should keep on monitoring your ALT levels and if they are ever found above 60,then you would require the treatment with interferons and immune modulators.
One can never get rid of HEP B positive status.
Avoid even a single drop of alcohol.
Carry on with the medications prescribed by your doctor.
Keep in regular touch with your gastroenterologist.
Thanks
