I had donated blood to Prathma for the first time in last July 2009. And in August I got blood test report from Prathma containing my Blood is reactive for HBsAg. So I consulted with doctor regarding that and as per my doctor's suggestion I have created reports of blood, urine and sonography. in those reports the result came that my liver is normal, urine report is normal and blood report contains HBsAg Positive. So after that as per advice of my doctor I have created another blood report for HBeAg test and in that report I got HBeAg Negative. So doctor then told me not to take any further treatment for that and advised me to create blood reports for HBeAg at every six months.
So I would like to know that as I have HBeAg Negative now so do I need to take treatment for that also?
Is that HBsAg phase in my blood report curable?
Do I need to take any specific type of diet for that?
Can I get infected by HBeAg Positive?
I am going to merry so can that virus affects my wife also?
Please help me in solving my confusion and answer my question.
Did you get tested for HBsAb, HBeAb and viral load ? Can you post them if you have them ? Also your AST/ALT (though you mentioned your liver is normal).
HBeAg -ve usually means there is little active replication (assuming you do not have mutated virus which manages not to produce e-antigen. This is why having HBeAb test would help).
- Treatment depends on your viral load.
- HBsAg elimination is in theory possible but very rare.
- Diet ? Lots of vegetables, less alcohol in take etc..
- HBeAg (e-antigen ) is a by-product while virus is replicating. Chances are close to 0% for you turn HBeAg +ve
- You need to get your future wife vaccinated (and people who live with you as of now).
At the time of perganency test I found the my wife blood report contains HBsAg Positive. So after that as per advice of my doctor we have created another blood report for HBeAg test and in that report she got HBeAg Negative. Please advise us what we should do.
1. Should we go for any other test.
2. Is it curable? What kind of medicine should we take. like doctor advice Liv.52 DS tables.
3. Do she need to take any specific type of diet for that?
4. Can she get infected later by HBeAg Positive?
Report are as follows:
HBeAg Negative(0.6) when negative means-- S/Co<1.0
HBeAb Positive(0.2) when positve means-- S/Co< 1.0
