Yes, good.: Your fibroscan is in the mild to no fibrosis range. Immune tolerant phase is usually only in newborns where the virus in present, but non-pathogenic, with normal liver enzymes and no to minimal pathology on liver biopsy. Sometimes it persists into adulthood, like in your case. Most progress to immune-active with liver inflammation during childhood.
