no, food and hbv infection has nothing to do

i dont have any symptoms that i feel at all...

noone has symptoms, hbv doesn t have any.only very few with acute resolving hbv has symptoms
since all the damage is done by our immune system and not the hbv virus, the chronic carriers have no immune response and no symptoms

the only cure is:
tenofovir for 3-5years and then peginterferon add on until hbsag is cleared

How about Entecavir?

much much much weaker, it makes no sense to use weaker antivirals and even more expensive

on hbeag negative based on hbsag decline first 3-4years, hbsag clearance will be at:
etv >32-35years which is a life time
tdf 17 years

dear stef,
I totally trust your info but can I ask if you have some statistics behind it?
I am asking because my mum was diagnosed chirrosis (cirrhosis) last month due to hbv and her doctor started tratment with etv (baraclude) instead of tdf.
in other posts I see that you support tdf iso etv so I am just worried if my mum's treatment started in a wrong way.

also im wondering when pegint and interferon comes into picture during treatment.

thanks,
halit

both etv and tdf are ok for your mother if she has cirrhosis, in this case we dont care about clearing hbsag but mainly keep hbvdna und and ast/alt less than 19.if etv can reach these results it doesn t matter

it is also a matter of life and death that your mother never used other antivirals like lamivudine or telbivudine before using etv

all the studies are posted in the community, just browse and you ll find them or use google with medhelp among search terms
