I don't have answers but please be patient.  

As soon as someone who knows something about your condition logs on, I'm sure they'll respond to your posts.

Personally, I have C, not B.  
Good luck and hang in there.

My first post here. I am 23 and a Hepatitis B carrier since birth. Just had a recent check up with a gastroenterologist in Singapore. The doctor advised me to take Baraclude (entecavir) 0.5mg Tablets. The Doctor prescribed 4 months of Baraclude for me. However, due to the high cost of the drug, I took one months prescription first.

I have not start taking the drug yet as I just found out from the web that there are side effects to the liver. I also cannot stop taking the drug as it might worsen the condition.

After looking at the web, I was surprised that doctor didn't warned me about drug and let me buy one month's prescription. I did ask him about side effects but he said it is safe and do not worry. I know that he initially prescribed 4 months for me but he never told me about going back after 4 months to have another blood test. He did not mention that I cannot stop once I start consuming the drug.

I came to realize that doctor did not advise me in detail. All he told me was my condition is pretty severe I should start taking the drug. I don't even know whether I'm classified as CHRONIC Hepatitis B carrier or not chronic. Can anyone here help me interpret my results?

Here are my results:


Bilirubin Total:   Result 18  - reference (0-   26         umol/L)
                   Result 1.0 - reference (0.0 -   1.5     mg/dL)

SGPT/ALT:          Result 50* - reference (3-  40     U/L)

Alpha Fetoprot:    Results 2.2- reference (0.0-   15.0   ug/L)

HBsAg:       Reactive *
HBsAb        Non Reac
HBsAb Count  < 1.0

Result Interpretation HBsAb Count: > 10.0 mIU/ml Reactive (Please not that the result interpretation for HBsAb Count has been changed wef 22 Jan 2007)

HBeAg       Reactive *
HBeAb       Non Reactive


HBV DNA >3.80E7 IU/ml
HBV DNA is done by Roche, Cobas Amlicor
(E: exponetial, i.e. E3=1000, E5=100,000)
Linear range: 60 - 3.80E7 IU/mL
To convert Result IU/mL to copies/mL = result x 5.26

I do not mind taking the drug as long as I know why I take the drug. Can anyone advice me what to do?
