What to do if you HBsAg positive and HBV DNA quantitative results with 675071 IU/ml? Do I need to consult a doctor? Am I in acute of chronic stage? Someone suggested me to take Tenofovir Disoproxil tables to control it. Will this be helpful? Please help.

    Hi Kevin, whether it’s acute or chronic infection depends on the period of infection. It is said that if HBsAg is positive for over 6 months, then it’s Chronic infection. The Viral load from HBV DNA seems to be a lot (to me). Obviously it’s best to see a doctor instead of taking any medication at your own. Because it depends on the LFTs as well and the scan of your liver. Hope it helps. Regards

      Hi Muhammad,

      Thanks for your help. I accidentally came to know when I was suppose to donate blood to a friend. I really dont' know since how long i have been carrying it. I am just worrying how and when this virus came to me. I just visited a doctor and he asked me to be on the same medicine of Tenofovir for atleast 30 days to see the result.  Will I have to be on these kind of medicine for rest of my life? Will this recover later? My SGPT result is 29 U/L currently.

      Please suggest.
