Viread (TenofovirCan I take It

Hi,

I was told that I have Hep B. I have no symptoms and I have always being feeling well all my life. I have no kidney problems; but based on the research that I have done so far, I discovered that I may develop Kidney problems by using Tenofovir. Please help.
Thanks

hbv has no symptoms, you may even be dying and feel nothing

tenofovir improves kideys function especially tenofovir+telbivudine in those with kidneys function.it is only hiv patients to have kidneys toxicity from tenofovir but studies on hiv have no meaning because those patients are mostly drug users and their organs may be already destroyed by unhealthy lifestyles before using antivirals

check the other posts where we posted these results, during tenofovir just monitor creatinine monthly as it should be done on every patients

kidneys toxicity is the less with tenofovir, telbivudine and lamivudine, medium with entecavir and maximum with adefovir.be aware only tenofovir and entecavir are safe for hbv, the other are not firstline

i use both fibroguard, nac and coq10 to keep my kidneys at best since i am on entecavir plus tenofovir and used also alinia.my kidneys improved on these antivirals plus antioxidants

Thanks Stef2011.

I am still considering my choice if I have to take this drug or not. I want to know the origin of this disease and who invented them. Based on my previous research, I discovered that it was initially occured on the soldiers during early wars or whatever. Does all these diseases real or just to market drugs and so on? I am so much concern. I have never in my life get taking to hospital, yet I was told that it is chronic and that I might have caught it from my parents or during fight in my early school days Ooops. I just can't believe all these. Thanks for your response.
