does it mean im inactive?
yes for the moment, your immune system is able to stop virus from making damage for the moment, but virus might mutate to precore or bcp and restart damage.it is not possible to know if it will only hbsag<500iu/ml have almost 100% probability to stay inactive
or non-contagious but still has HBV infection?you are both contagious and have hbv infection but the virus cannot damage liver for the moment.you will be contagious by blood even if recover complitely eradicating hbsag.the virus stays in the body decades or indefinitely but when hbsag is negative immune system has total control of hbv
what course of treatment would u recommend? there's no therapy or ntz, listen also to other members but there's no therapy
to make hbsag negative only ntz in some
or interferon but results are so low i wouldn't try it in ur situation
HBsAG: 2,676 REACTIVE, this means you are full of cccdna, the virus template, should check in iu/ml to know exactly the quantity and know your situation better
HBV-DNA: 997 IU/ml, means virus replication at low level , this would be better undetactable but it might stay this way all your life with very little damage or mutate hbv genome and rise
thanks.. ur answer always have the best explanation.. =)
however, im a bit worried.. do u suggest that i'll let my self checked again for HBsAg (in iu/ml or quantitatively) so as to know the real situation about my infection?
HBV-DNA: 997 IU/ml, means virus replication at low level , this would be better undetactable but it might stay this way all your life with very little damage or mutate hbv genome and rise --- this made me shiver, it might stay this way all my life???if this will go undetectable, will my HBsAg will be nonreactive too?
and lastly, what do u suggest for me to do? i want to ask an specialist regarding my situation, will a gastroenterologist will do? or a hepatologist? nonetheless, do u strongly suggest i should take Alinia?
thanks so much! looking forward for ur response.. God Bless! =)
seems that you are indeed very helpful and would like to get your comments about my results taken last week.
Anti HAV IgM (CMIA) 0.520 1.20 : reactive
Anti HBc IgM (CMIA) 0.373 COV 1.000 Non Reactive
HBeAG (CMIA) 0.333 COV 1.000 Non Reactive
Anti HBs (CMIA) 0.000 mIU/ml COV 10.000 Non Reactive
Anti HBe (CMIA) 0.016 COV 1.000 Reactive
AHB3 count below the cut off value is considered
i sent you a PM you have superinfection by hav and hbv, hav never gets cronic but as superinfection hav+hbv can make very severe liver damage so you need absolutely to check liver by fibroscan and if not available by biopsy.if fibroscan is available make more readings during infection, after infection and every 6 months if there is fibrosis so that you see if fibrosis+inflammation regresses when hav is complitely cleared
there is no cure for hav only vaccine so you have to wait until you clear it, if you have reached a lot of fibrosis (liver damage) you must treat hbv in order to block liver damage and regress fibrosis.if your liver has no fibrosis just monitor situation every 3-6 motnhs
My husband has a hepa b, last week he had he's medical test, the result is PV 245.98
COV 2.000. In this count, he's chronic and contagious?, does he is in serious condition of hepa b?, please answer my question, i'm really worried for my husband. Thank You in adavnce.
