Good day to all, here are my latest and past results.
I understand that my hbv dna is decreasing, is there any chance of clearing the virus?
and at this result is there any way to help clear the virus?
whatever it is: acute, chronic, on treatment, hbvdna predicts nothing as regards the infection, the test is just money wasted if you want to know if the infection is clearing.hbvdna in the blood has zero correlation with clearance of hbv in the liver, the infection is due to cccdna inside the liver cells and the quantity of cccdna/infected cells is reflected by hbsag quantity and not hbvdna quantity, so only hbsag quantity can show if you are clearing the infection
Im not really sure if im acute but I have some theory which can be proven that I have infected someone last year at the time which I was tested of HepaB. It is coincidence? I might say my case is acute.
Im from the Philippines, and I dont know yet if there is hbsag quantity here. I need to have that test which stef2011 has also suggested.
In 3 months, your HBV DNA has come down very well. I guess with the high viral load, you are E-Antigen Positive (meaning your virus are actively replicating). Sero-conversion to E-Antigen Negative can occur to you soon and we don't know whether that's a good thing or not. According to Drs, that's the aim of anti-viral treatment.
it is important your hbsag gets to 1000-1500iu/ml around these levels hbv cant suppress our interferon and our immune responses, hbeag becomes negative and hbsag will slowly clear in a few decades
if hbsag stays very high being hbvdna und has little meaning on the infection, the replication is lowered, liver damage lowered or none, but the infection goes on and antiviral needs to be taken for decades/life
I forgot to mention I am taking Vit C and E, and its a mistake that i forgot D. =)
Anyway, how can we gain Vit D without taking it? as you have said you aren't an outdoor person, but I think I'm between an indoor and outdoor person.
I have my exercise every morning 5:30 am to 7am, I jog in an hour and warm out the remaining minutes. Does that make me an outdoor person? c: I only eat fish and vege, sweet potatoes, boiled bananas and rice. I am on a strict diet too.
I'm going to my doctor tomorrow for the next step to my sero-conversion.
That's very good that you exercise every morning but the morning sun is not too fierce for your skin to absorb Vit D. Even Dr Oz take Vit D because it's hard to get enough from the diet and excessive sun exposure (have to be without sunscreen) can cause cancer.
I went to my doctor and she said taking my HBsAG level will not help me. She said its just for those who are having injections? Is this true?
She also said vit D has less effect on the virus. Is my doctor reliable? I only visited her twice and my routine of medications is based on what I read here in website.
Which is effective Carnithine orotate (Godex DS) or essentiale forte?
She gave me a prescription of Godex 2x a day.
your doctor is not reliable at all and she just report old guidelines of about 3 years ago without knowing what hbv and therapy are all about, it is best you find an updated liver specialist, she is definitely not able to personalize your treatment according to hbsag response and this is not hard to do so she is just incompetent and not updated
vit d3 can be obtained from pills only for us, hbv blocks vit d.the higher vit d the lower hbvdna as reported by 2 studies now, one from 2010 easl and one from latest easl
