The normal level for SGPT for a woman is 32 and mine is 49 i m worried bcoz i m HBV carrier and have not talk to my doctor yet bcoz shes out of town, what should i do to make my SGPT lower? please help me.
sorry berry what you are saying is wrong, liver damage is present with alt above 30, i got cirrhosis with normal alt 35, it is a slow process and depends on virus muattions but it is better to check firboscan for liver damage
healthy carrier are only with hbsag<500iu/ml hbvdna<200iu/ml, alt<30, these have 100% chances of non reactivation and more than 10% chances of hbsag negative, all others go from active to inactive he needs monitoring.
we are making many new discoveries from better tools like fibroscan and more sensitive blood test and everything is changing from year to year, and only european guidelines are changing by year so it is better to look at them
I went to the lab test again yesterday as my doctor asked me to take a test again 1 month after. my result are
HBe antibody 5.8
Of course i m not happy of my result and i went to my doctor and she asked me for HBV DNA that i will gonna do it tomorrow for sure, and she told me i had a liver damage bcoz of my SGPT keep on moving up and she said i will undergo treatment also. I feel nervous now for the DNA. Do y'all think that i still can have a fiancee visa even i m a HBV carrier, i m worried of my situation :( please give me an advice Thank U
hbe antibody is useless, once you know hbeag is negative you don t need that test any more, the test needed are:
hbvdna pcr with sensibility at least 10iu/ml, alt/ast, ultrasound every 6 months and fibroscan or biopsy to know the damage of your liver, according to these results and especially the liver damage you will start a therapy or not
alt are not reliable for damage anymore, you can have alt 10 and hbvdna 500000iu/ml and liver severely damaged plus normal alt with high hbvdna promotes liver cancer, many of the old theories have been proven wrong today
don t worry about anything you are lucky you know you have hbv and if needed you can stop it from making damage
if you find liver damage start nitazoxanide plus interferon first (although interferon can have heavy sides) ecause you are too young to start long years therapies like tenofovir/entecavir
