Hep B. Virus DNA

I was recently diagnosed with Hep. B and my current AST and ALT is around 160.  Which seem low enough compare to others.  However I find my Virus DNA count incredibly high at 1,110,000,000 H  

Can someone tell me if they also have this high DNA count and what did the Doctor say about this?

Hi Cajim,

Thank you for your reply. I know you are so kind to help others.
The doctor didn't test the HBeAg, HbeAB, He only test the HbAg: Reactive then test
virus DNA count and the result is incredibly high...
What it means? My liver function is damage right now?
I will have my doctor to check the two you mentioned and post to you right away.

If your HBeAg(+), HBeAB(-), then your DNA is expected to be high, but with little liver damage.  However, your ALT is also high, so your doctor by 2007 guideline may start antiviral treatment.
