I was diagnosed with hepatitis B around 10 years back. Doctore told me that I am just a carrier and do not need any medication. Only suggested me following test on a yearly basis:
2. HBV DNA Quantitative
I got these test conducted on July 9, 2010 and my readings were as follows:
ALT - 74
HBV DNA (by TAQ-MAN Method) - 71 IU/ML
Getting concerned, I got my self re-tested with following tests on JUly 17, 2010.
1. HEPATITIS Be ANTIBODIES, SERUM
Result - Reactive
2. HEPATITIS Be ANTIGEN, SERUM
Result - Non Reactive
3. HBV DNA Quantitative
Result (by TAQ-MAN Method) - 25 IU/ML
Within a time frame of around 9 days my viral load decreased from 71 to 25 IU/ML.
I am not on any medication.
Please suggest what should I make or understand out of it?
Is my body recoverig or I need to be concerned as my Anti body result is Reactive.
I do not understand these things much technically. Pease advice.
don t worry about anything but add ultrasound and fibroscan on yearly basis
i was in the same condition as you but hbvdna und and alt old normal range 25-50, i do suggest US and fibroscan because i ended with cirrhosis because it is possible to evolve to cirrohosis even if hbvdna is low and alt normal although less common
check our thread about alinia from time to time and if you see we get very good results at 6-12 months i suggest you start it
also monitor replicor and myrcludex B because both are a real cure for hbv but still on phase 2 human trials
yes i am in that situation, liver cirrhosis will regress if early compensated to complitely normal liver by normal alt and hbvdna und for 5-7 years
if liver cirrhosis is advanced or uncompendated you can block it but the liver cannot get back to complitely normal, i posted time ago a study with platlets 195 or higher and PT 92% (i am not sure about pt value i don t remember well), hbvdna und and alt normal it regresses.also normal albumin and low bmi than 24 helps
