pls help me.l have tested hbv +ve since 2006 and my health profile follows.Hbv viral load 9500. ast 26iu/l alt17 alp 62. GGT 24 hbsAg +ve HbeAg -ve HbsAb -ve HbeAb +ve hbcAb +ve yet doctor say I can't start treatment. pls help can I change my doctor?
treatment is not needed in most cases, it is not the virus to make damage but our own immune systems so those with weakest immune system have no damage
monitor liver by fibroscan and if no damage you can choose if keep monitoring
latest results show that it is good to start tenofovir anyway because after 5 years or more on tenofovir or entecavir peginterferon add on cures most patients.the key to cure is the number of years on antivirals or if earlier than that hbsag less than 1000iu/ml
Thanx for this advice .but one of reasons for no treatment is DAT my HbeAg is -ve ie am not fighting back. and that my ast alt are within range and we don't do fibroscan here.drs rely on liver biopsy which I leant is not thorough.I know I can not treat my self.so are all these position correct?
