    If the hepatitis b surface antigen (HbsAg) persists for longer than 6 months it becomes chronic, some people clear the infection. The treatment for chronic hepatitis is reduction of the viral load to the barest minimum so it doesnt become symptomatic. You need to see a Gastroenterologist who will request you do tests like viral load and HbeAg to know if you will need treatment. You will also be given appointments for regular follow up. All the best

    You have chronic hepatitis B infection. Like I mentioned you need to see a Gastroenterologist. You can visit a teaching hospital close to you for one. You need to go to the out patient department and get a referral to see the specialist. If you need help with finding one you can send a mail to findadoctor@kangpe.com stating your location and request. Take care
