Vitamin D

Thank you Stef2011 for your unlimited useful information. I got my Vitamin levels tested and they are really low, only 25 ng/ml. (insufficient is <20; suboptimal 20-29 ng/ml). Also, my SGOT and SGPT are normal now, as well as my bilirubin, so I'm glad that I didn't accept taking Viread.
Get tested for your Vitamin D levels, because my husband who doesn't have hepatitis B has only 17 ng/ml so it's even worse than me.

So HBV is the result or a cause of Vit D deficiency, you think? Looks like it does not correlate at all.

any level below 40-50ng/ml is insufficent and promotes some diseases, the ranges you reported are refered to bone diseases only but cancer, metabolic and so on require much more vit d

I don't know but it's good to test your levels and I'm glad I've found this forum and its useful information.
Here's a link between chronic hepatitis B and low vitamin D levels: http://www.hbvadvocate.org/news/HBJ8.12.htm
By the way, my husband's blood tests results are bad and minearenormal, because I eat healthy, exercise regulary
