  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    An HBV viral load of greater than 2,000 IU/mL indicates that the virus is active and has the potential to cause damage to the liver. Generally speaking, if the HBV viral load is above these numbers, treatment is considered necessary.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!
