I am Hepatitis B positive. Recently I went to meet a doctor who is a liver specialist & a researcher. He suggest me to take Barcavir. Please see my clinical tests of Hepatitis panel-1 & give me some advice what should I do at this time.....
Test Description Observed Value Biological Reference Interval
HBsAg (Confirmation), serum by CMIA POSITIVE (3853.49) NEGATIVE
Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) DNA Quantification (Viral load) – COBAS TaqMan
Test : Quantification of HBV DNA from patient’s plasma or serum by standard procedure on COBAS TaqMan
Equipment : COBAS AmpliPrep and COBAS TaqMan
Limit of Detection : 20 IU/ml
Specificity : 100% with a confidence limit of 99.54%
HBV DNA Quantification – COBAS TaqMan >989400000 copies/ml IU/ml
Log Value Not Applicable
Your viral load, hbvdna is actually >989400000 copies/ml . As stef2011 said, you are in the Immune Tolerant phase. whether to treat or not is always difficult to decide in this phase which may last another 10 years or so. Your ALT is slight elevated. I would suggest that you wait for another 6 months and test again your ALT and hbvdna again. If you have a chance, try to do a Fibroscan to confirm that your liver is okay. Most patients in this phase, have very little or no liver damage, so treatment is not necessary now.
Please note, you have some very good Hepatitis B doctors in your country.
Thanks for ur coment yes. There are many good doctors and I went to an professor. Plz can u say according to my blood test reports.... Can I get cure of it? Is it in serious position? What should I eat & what shouldn't...??
Please read stef2011 and my comments. Hepatitis B is never serious when you keep it under control, that is getting treatment when it is necessary. A cure by yourself and under treatment is always possible but rare. You should eat like any normal persons who want a healthy lifestyle, a healthy diet, plenty of fruit and vegetable, no smoking or drinking, plenty of exercise and avoid being obese. Take vitamin D if you are deficient.
