Management of Hepatitis B carrier state would depend on the actual viral load, severity of the condition and probably the virus subtype. Majority of carriers clear the infection in due course of time; while treatment is required with those with a high viral load or liver damage. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating hepatologist.
Hope this is helpful.
'' while treatment is requiered with those with a high viral load or liver damage''I am not a doctor but i know that those in immune tolerant phase have high viral load and treatment is not recommended.Am i wrong?
About 20% of carriers clear the infection naturally in 1-5 years, while there is about another 10% who would do so over long term (10-18 years). Treatment response varies between 25-45%, while 20-30% would develop complications from long term carrier state.
Thank you for the info...i just want to know if there is possible that i could pass my medical bcoz it is required for me to have medical since i am fixing my visa going to USA...I am only a carrier but i am physically fit like my doctor told me...any advice please?
make your living healthy by eating right, but this would need time. you must be responsible of disciplining your body( this is the rule). do not eat meat, chocolates, butter, cheese, ice cream, and any bread if not wheat bread, processed foods are the culprits too. there are a lot of which i know passed the medical by doing this. i also talked to a friend which endorses MLM products from kinetics and forever living, this can help too since i've seen patients who took the products became clear and passed the medical exams. this is true but not all are being blessed with this results, best part is to pray....malunggay can also be part of your diet.
