nothing just stay healthy as regards foods,sleeping and stress.vit d3, vit C and all antioxidants helping in cases of other acute viral diseases may speed up the process.
3-4% of immune suppressed is such a low percentage i dont think we will ever see many of these adults showing up and of this 3-4% the most wont have any symtoms to even go to a doctor
There is nothing you can do to ensure you will clear the virus. That is up to your immune system. There is no guarantee anyone child or adult will clear the virus on their own. It happens quite often. I think the healthy you are the better the chance you have. Eat healthy, drink lots of water and a clean lifestyle. However if you have not cleared the virus in 6 months to a year you may not ever. The next step would be to get proactive with the disease. Good luck
Look, I u wish an advice of someone who has not recovered from an acute Hep B I will give you un important one: Sleep and take a lot of rest.
Despite Steff opinion I have allways being healthy and I could not get rid of the virus.
In my case the liver enzymes did not move from normal levels. THe only thing that showed that I had acute infection was HBSag +ve and Viral load = 2500 copies / ml. The doctor told me that I would eliminate the virus for sure but its being already two years and I am still the same.
I can tell you that even if that my liver enzymes did not move during acute infection I was In HELL with ride side rib pain and lots of pain all over ( not jaundice of course).
There is no garantie even if you r un adult. Tell us more about your case and u will recieve feedback.
just to correct something extremely wrong, so wrong to be surprising from a doctor......
I had acute infection was HBSag +ve and Viral load = 2500 (this is presnet in all kind of hbv infection of any sort), this does not reflect an acute infection and also normal alt is impossible in an acute infection totally impossible even if youwere totally immune suppressed.
only hbcab igm pos can confirm an acute infection (and not 100% because hbcab igm becomes pos during alt flares also on chronic hbv)
the only thing to prove an acute infection 100% is hbsag neg, hbcab neg, hbsab neg before having the infection, for the rest there is no way to know if the infection was from birth or aquired as adult
Well steff, It is clear that you know many things about hepb, many more than most of us in here. Could you consider for a moment that u r wrong this time? Even most wise man on earth can be wrong once, ins't it?
Yes u r righ, in 2010, I was hbsag neg, hbcab neg, hbsab neg ( I have the tests and showed them to doctor) And after infection ( I know exactly the cause ) 11/2011 everything was + and i assure you no ALT at all. ( I do check ups every years to control my ealth )
I supose u still don't believe this as It was very hard to understand for me as well as for my doctor here in france. Anyway, I have looked for a case like mine all around and did not find any. My doctor Told me I dont need traitement as I am HBEag - ve and low viral load.
I just have these last questions, If you were vaccinated against hep b and exposed to it afterwards would your liver enzymes increase? or would it silently fight off hep b? Also what age do they consider one an adult in the 90% that will fight it off. And last question, generally how long would it take that adult to fight it off?
There is no age set on when ones body is considered to be "adult". You could say puberty is adult or pre teen. Some adult continue to grow after age of 18-21. That is merely a number that society uses for restrictions.
If you were properly vaccinated for Hep B meaning the whole six months of shots. Your body would fight any exposure to hep b. Your liver enzymes can increase or decrease at anytime due to other things.
I am curious are you speaking of yourself with these issues or someone else.
few beers drunk daily, alcool, high fat food, processed foods, these all can make alt elevated and damged liver
it is silly to think about alt and acute hbv infection...even without hbv vaccine an acute hbv infection will make no damage to the liver and even if some is made ti will be repaired by 6months...acute hbv infection cannot make fibrosis
most drugs can make alt elveated with their toxicity too, so in the end there is no point in searching for a possible ultra mild or very short alt elevation which can be the norm in some moments of our life and make no damage
it is continuous alt elevated for years if not life to make the repair of liver not fast enough and unbalance the system and make real damage, just think about me who regressed cirrhosis in about 1.6years with alt 40-50....
