There are many ways of catching the disease. One can get it at the barber or through a used syringe if those people are not careful, or if anybody at home or near friend has it and by mistake their infected blood got to you. In your case you probably got it from your mother at birth, if she had it then. Goto a hepatologist or a gastroentrologist for treatment options. keep reading posts here. Keep monitoring LFTs (every 3 months), liver ultrasound (6 monthly), fibroscan (6 monthly), HBsAg quantitative by Abbot Architect (yearly), HbeAg (yearly), PTT (3 monthly), RFT (6 monthly).
