check also hbvdna if it is less than 10iu/ml it is very probable you didn t develop mutants, if it is high you might have mutants.the only paramter for maximum security of no lam mutants is hbvdna undetactable by 4 weeks or very very low by 12 weeks after this period the mutant can be already present although it will take years to become detactable to assays
i already take lemivuadine for almost 3weeks i always following my doctors advice but honestly i really dont trust my doctor because i dont feel any difference and lemivuadine is very expensive medicine here in our country i cannot afford to buy everyday thanks for your reply stefano i want to here more from you because i didnt know a lot about hbv.....
what is tenofovir?and what is the best vitamin you can advice me to take?
actually lam is the cheapest since it has no market anymore, it failed both for hiv and hbv, maybe they still use it in hiv cocktails
tenofovir is viread brand name and tenvir generic from cipla or tavin from emcure, it is the most potent drug for hbv with zero hbv mutations.it is also an old hiv drug approved in 2000 so the price should be low too.the other drugs entecavir and interferon are very expensive everywhere.so the cheapest option is to get tavin from emcure from india, if it is not available in your country i can tell you charity aids websites where the price is very low
as to vitamins they are all useless if you eat fresh foods and vegetables you don t need vitamins, also consider than chemical vitamins from drugs are not pure and they are not good food is the best source for vitamins.
only in rare cases of low blood levels it might be useful to use them but if levels in the blood are normal they decrease immune system.
vitamin D might be helpfull but you can get it by 20 minutes daily sun exposure in the philippines
regarding tenofovir i did a few research about this medicine..they say it is a medicine for hiv and it is also use for hbv but need doctor prescription due to its side effects and it my harm the liver of the patient if the drug is not compatible with my body..... can you give me a medicine that is i can find here in the phil and not that expensive please.....
do you have hbv also stefano?
it seems like you have a lot of knowledge regarding hbv
thanks for helping me
you read wrong things, tenofovir is the best and cheapest drug for hbv and it is the most potent and firstline drug for hbv
hiv and hbv share the same drugs, almost all drug for hiv are active on hbv and the opposite, they are very similar viruses dispite different family
the sides of tenofovir are only kidneys damage on less than 1% patients, you just have to follow the protocol for its use, that's to say weekly blood checks on creatinine at start to see f you are in that 1% if creatinine stays the same you can use it
the only other option is entecavir, it has no sides but it is useless on patients that used lam and make resistance very fast and also useless on those who have lam mutants even without use of this drug
since you used lam there is no other drug that work for you apart tenofovir, do not use entecavir or other drugs because they all make muattions making virus much worst and aggressive

making hbsag negative is not possible you can only prevent cirrhosis and liver cancer, these 2 are silent killers so do not expect any synthoms except when you are close to death.you'll always feel good but the liver might be complitely damaged and cirrhotic
the cheapest and most potent hbv treatment is tenofovir by its generic drug tenvir or tavin but this can be a life time therapy so you must check if you can afford it and also blood tests are necessary.this therapy prevents liver cancer and cirrhosis.combination with nizonide500 might make hbsag negative in years of treatment
first of all you should make a biopsy to understand how much damaged your liver is and if treatment is necessary because if you have no damage you can wait before starting therapy.again do not expect any synthoms, cirrhosis usually has no synthoms and even normal blood tests
if you have acute hbv (hbcab igm positive) you must take no drugs, they might interfere with immune system and make acute hbv cronic
the only case to use drugs is if you have fulminant hbv and to avoid liver failure entecavir can be used
hbv drugs are only to stop liver damage not to eradicate hbv so you have to wait years before starting treatment because most of hbv cronic forms make no damge the problem is it is not easy to see which ones.close monitor by hbsag quantitative, hbvdna quantitative and fibroscan can say
also donot use fibroscan during acute hbv it cannot measure liver damage during this phase
