About Me: Male, 40, Cebu, Philippines, member since May 2011
I am a chronic carrier of HBV and I don't know since when. I do not have any idea as to where I got infected. I was informed about this condition when I was applying for a job and I could not believe it. It broke my heart so much that I cried almost every night thinking
[More] of this health condition. Eventually I was able to accept it and live with it in a normal way. I am interested in research for the cure or effective treatment of HBV. I was also under treatment and taking Entecavir for about 2 months but I gave up because of financial constraints. I know that there is a considerable percentage risk if you stop your medication but there is nothing I can do about it. I am taking Essentiale Forte 3 times a day as a supplement for my liver.
