Yes
why not
You can be among 1-3%
However if u use peg inf the chances are almost 10 %

The cost of pegIFN is too much in west african countries around $550 per injection.

My spirit is lifted, since there is a chance for one to seroconvert hbsag even without meds.

But our own immune system produces interferon which is neutralise by hbsag "stef2011"

It is generally unsafe to stop treatment when hbvdna became undetectable. So please monitor your ALT and hbvdna frequently in the next few months.

our immune system makes nothing if we are infected by hbv, it is the virus to drive the immune response, not us

without antivirals or peg it is like 100% chronic, a percentage like 1-3% is meaningless especially because the error of these studies might be higher than 1-3% and cannot reflect real life

nothing else, just keep vitamin d levels at high range of normal, but this is just for general health and keep immune system healthy, not a cure for hbsag

india and vietnam have their own generic peginterferon which is cheaper, if you happen to have friends there you may get it cheaper

Where did u have ur hbsag quantity test done?
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
that's in Ghana@ MDS laboratories, the hbsag is so frustrating, I tell u, u can just concentrate again, the only one to heal us now is the Almighty.

hbsag at 710 iu/ml for you is really low. You should look for a way to get PegInf, so u can clear whats remaining off. You have a big chance. I suggest you try some teaching hospitals in Ghana, you might find you can get it for free.
I am considering comming to ghana to have my HBSAG quantity test done from Nigeria. The lab where i have been doing it in Lagos is not very reliable. They keep giving me highly fluctuating and wide varying figures each time i go to check.
Please let me have the address in Ghana where i go for the test. Is results out the same day?

I mean east legon in Accra, one injection of pergyinterferon I've been told cost around 550 dollars, how much is it in nigeria
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
All clear. Thanks.
I just checked with a phamacy just now. Told its about 150 dollars for a shot.

OK, thx for ur concern, what is da value of ur hbsag n what hv u been taken now.
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
Sorry made a mistake wrt the quoted interferon price in nigeria. It's actually 225 dollars. I can't quote an accurate hbsag quantity as I have been using an unreliable lab. Which is why I want to come redo it in Ghana. Been on tnf for 3 years nw, together with10k a day vitD. I also take an antioxidant food supplement and also stabilised vitD.

Blank

You need to contact your local pharmacy or Dr. Keep in mind this medicine need to be store temperature between 2-8 C, PEGINTERFERON ALFA-2A, is the name if they are expensive in your country you may come to India and get for yourself! It cost here around $100 - $120 a shots.

thanks for your quick responce, I did not tell anybody about my diagnoses, so affording money for it will b hard for me, my parents are incapable, but I never feel anything wrong with my body and not taking any medication now, only thinking day in day out about the condition, my Dr even said he is yet to put eyes on peginterferon, I will b seeing him tomorrow for my hbsag value, hope the best for me, thank you.
