Anti HBe +ve
HBV DNA: Undetected (20/02/14)

AFP: 0.8 ng/ml
USG : Normal
Serum Bilirubin (T): Normal
Prothrombin Time (PT): Patient: 12.7 sec, control: 11.8, Normal Range 11-16 sec
my doctor advised me take Vitamin E & B Complex six month, End of six month chek again HBV DNA & Bilirubin and meet. My doctor right or wrong ?
he is right but the most important is vitamin D both check and take d3 5000iu daily.this have an effect on boosting immune system.d3 is only natural so not possible to take synthetic
d2 is the synthetic type to avoid because it doesn t work as the natural one on immunity and d serum levels
vit E youhave to look for the natural vit E and not the synthetic.the natural vit E is a blend of several vit E compounds
here you see many vit E
but this is the only blend of natural extracted vit E
your hbsag is high but you can try peginterferon anyway, especially if genotype B, another member here took peg and ended with hbsag very very low less than 100iu/ml, probably clearing slowly offf therapy now
With dna und and alt normal you do not need no treatment. Those vitamins are harmless. People take vit d3 because its insufficiency is associated with all health problem that one can imagine but there is no proof that supplementin vit d makes any difference.
He is considering your HBV UND + normal ALT levels, most doctors don't advise treatment with IFN when ALT is normalized.
However new treatment scenarios are developed and it is how stef says, its worth trying IFN.
What about fibroscan? Have you got test on them yet?
Your LFT looks good. HBe-Ag negative so the virus is not actively replicating.
IFN is not candy. Must be refrigerated, injected into your body fat once a week. Will most likely get all your blood count down to very low level. And tiredness one of the more common symptom. Above all, not that cheap unless your country got good health care subsidies.
Good Luck. I don't think you need any treatment as yet unless you like to get rid of the virus ASAP. Like Stef and Rome said, Vit D3 5,000iu daily supplement is a must if you are not on any medication for HBV.
