hi.
thanks for posting query at HCM

advise for you:

HBsAg can not be completely eradicated in a patient suffering from HepB.
however, complications maybe prevented if proper medication is taken and proper diet plan is followed.

even if HBV DNA count in PCR are not high,
Liver enzymes should be monitored regularly while HepB markers maybe checked every 6 to 12 months.

Treatment is advised IF high values of liver enzymes AND high viral LOad on a PCR.

for your wife; she should be vaccinated against HBV asap

hope to answer your concern.
wish you good n family good n sound health.
