Thanks for writing in.
The LFT values reported are not high enough to warrant aggressive treatment. If the patient is HBsAg positive then a ultrasound examination and a liver biopsy may be done.If the liver biopsy shows active inflammation then one can consider antiviral therapy. In addition supportive liver tonics will also help in maintaining good liver function.
