See your doctor regularly if you have
chronic HBV infection
If you have been diagnosed with long-term
(chronic) HBV infection, your doctor will recommend that
you be vaccinated for
hepatitis A if you have not been vaccinated or are not
immune to this disease. For more information on hepatitis A, see the topic
Hepatitis A. You also will need to visit your
doctor regularly. He or she will do blood tests to monitor
your liver function and the activity of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) in your
body. Some of the tests can tell your doctor whether HBV is actively
multiplying in your liver, which increases your risk for chronic hepatitis.
Chronic hepatitis can lead to liver disease such as
liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma).
