S. ALT (SCPT) - 27.0 U/L ( Nor. Range- upto42 )
S. Creatinine - 90.0 micron mol/.L ( Nor. Range- 60 ~130 )
AFP (Alpha-Feto-Protein) -2.81ng/ml

I dont feel any other problem right now and just start the treatment here in Bangladesh. We can not
discuss with doctor more as they are very busy and spend few minutes for a patient.
Here one physician advised to take the medicine -- Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg -- One/daily.
Doctor advise to take long time only.
Is HEP B curable or what is the function of this medicine ?
Is there any side affect ? Pls. advise.
In this moment HBV is not curable is only manageable.
Tenofovir is one of the best antivirals existing on the market, but as you doctor say if you start a treatment will be a long one (possible life time treatment).
before take any decision, try to have a fibroscan or a biopsy to find out the liver condition and also try to have hbsag quantitative (depedn on this maybe you have a chance to add interferon and hope for a seroconversion).
What i understand from you, Once Tenofovir is started it can not be stopped. I think its a problem.
it can be stopped safely but you need at least 1 year of interferon add-on combo and slowly discontinue tnf.nobody say this becausse drug makers like patients to stay on these antivirals for life...of course
hbsag in iu/ml is the only test to predict hbv clearance on interferon+tnf, values lower than 1000-1500iu/ml have hiest clearance rates
Sorry to say Late thanks as I was out of station .
Is it need to complete full dosage. Or can I go direct sex contact after ONE or TWO dosages of vaccine. So far I know it takes total 6 months to complete the course. I expect a baby as early as possible .
