Increased oxidative stress associated with the severity of the liver disease and hbv replication


redlabs.com and europeanlaboratory.nl have oxidative stress blood tests available, i did anox total antioxidant capacity and mine is higher than normal by heptech products and antioxidant diet, so it is good
to note oxidative stress is also correlated to hbv replication

Increased oxidative stress associated with the severity of the liver
disease in various forms of hepatitis B virus infection

Background: Oxidative stress can be defined as an increase in oxidants  and/or a decrease in
antioxidant capacity. There is limited information about the oxidative status in subjects with
hepatitis B virus infection. We aimed to evaluate the oxidative status in patients with various clinical
forms of chronic hepatitis B infection.
Methods: Seventy-six patients with hepatitis B virus infection, in whom 33 with chronic hepatitis,
31 inactive carriers and 12 with cirrhosis, and 16 healthy subjects were enrolled. Total antioxidant
response and total peroxide level measurement, and calculation of oxidative stress index were
performed in all participants.
Results:  Total antioxidant response was significantly lower in cirrhotics than inactive HbsAg
carriers and controls (p = 0.008 and p = 0.008, respectively). Total peroxide level and oxidative
stress index was significantly higher in cirrhotic (p < 0.001, both) and chronic hepatitis B subjects
(p  0.05/6).
Total peroxide level and oxidative stress index were also comparable in inactive HBsAg carriers
and controls (both, p > 0.05/6). Serum alanine amino transferase level was positively correlated
with total peroxide level and oxidative stress index only in chronic hepatitis B subjects (p = 0.002,
r = 0.519 and p = 0.008, r = 0.453, respectively).
Conclusion:  Oxidative stress occurs secondarily to  increased total lipid peroxidation and
inadequate total antioxidant response and is related to severity of the disease and replication status
of virus in hepatitis B infection

how to reduce oxidative stress:

hepatitis technologies products
liposomal vitamin c from livnlabs
liposomal glutathione from livonlabs

then make blood tests at those labs to check if therapy is working.oxidative stress is not available in normal labs even if it is probably the most important test for the health of every person healthy/unhelthy and on every disease

Thank you, stef for this valuable information.
