Thanks for posting your query.
You have presently normal SGOT and SGPT. These two enzymes indicates liver status. These two enzymes originate from liver. Out of these two, SGPT is very liver specific.
You have positive HbsAg and it indicates that you are suffering from hepatitis B.
Though you have hepatitis B but normal SGOT/ SGPT indicates dormant stage of hepatitis B and you don't need any medication right now.
Anti-HBs shows immunity level after vaccination by hepatitis B vaccines.
Anti-HBs must be above 10 mIU/ ml.
You should also got for hepatitis B vaccination, if not done previously.
You should go for regular check up with regular SGOT/ SGPT analysis every 6 months.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Your sgpt and sgot levels are noraml, which usually reflecs there is no inflammation in the liver, the fact that you have the HBsAg reactive and the HBsAb no. Reactive means that you have the hepatitis B virus, however it is not necessary causing problems. Your liver enzymes are normal as i said, but you could also get an abdominal ultrasoud to better assess the liver, you also need to get a hepatitis B viral load on the blood, and if it is very low, that is good. You may eventuay need a liver biopsy.
If the hepatitis B turns out to be active, you should get treatment with pills in order to prevent cirrhosis and liver Cancer.
