Check with your local doctors.

It depends a lot on whether you are just positive to the test because you are immune - meaning you have had the vaccine - or whether you are chronic, etc.

You will need to talk to the doctor - and ask him/her what steps you need to take.

First - eat healthy - don't drink alcohol. Drink lots of water - second take the meds your doctor prescribes for your case. There are many phases of HEPB - and I have no clue what your tests revealed.
