What will I do? how will I know if my hepa b status is ok or not?

Here are the results of my tests:

Sept 2013
Hbsag = 2192.75
Bheag = 752.523
Alt. = 60.8 (normal is 0.0-31.0

I will do my 2nd alt test this week. My doctor said that if my alt gets lower, we will just monitor my health but if the result will be the same or higher, I will start my medications.

Can you help me find a reliable doctor here in the Philippines? Thanks.

First of all, you must state the unit of your hbsag and hbeag results, otherwise they are meaningless. You must measure your viral load, hbvdna. Nowadays, a good HepB doctor does not rely on ALT alone to decide whether treatment is needed or not.

As I say before, ALT alone is not sufficient to determine the state of your chronic Hepatitis B. If you take your ALT test in the morning and afternoon, the results can be different. You must also measure your hbvdna.

Im 23. I was diagnosed last Aug 2013 when I was supposed to get my first shot of vaccine. I'm pretty sure I got this between 2012-2013.

I think most of us dont know where and when exactly we got this virus. You are just making me angry. I know it is important that we should know how we got this. BUT We are ALSO here to know how we can stop and clear the virus, so please....
