hi.
thanks for posting query.

HepB can not be eradicated completely in patients infected with it.
however, complications can be prevented with proper care and treatment.
Treatment is advised if AST and ALT are > ULN and HBV DNA count on PCR is very high. Liver enzymes and HBsAg status and HBV DNA PCR maybe done regularly every 6 to 12 months,
Visit hepatologist for proper interpretation of results.

hope to answer concern
regards
Dr Tayyab Malik
