I think you should get tested for the status of your disease. I really doubt if herbal medicines can cure hepatitis B completely. Most of the cases of hepatitis B cure spontaneously and may not require treatment. A repeat test after 6 months may help in detecting whether you have cleared the virus or if the infection is persisting. Antiviral drugs are prescribed by a doctor in few cases where infection is most likely to progress to active hepatitis or cirrhosis. The decision to start treatment depends on liver function tests, HBV DNA tests, and liver biopsy results along with a complete history and physical examination .See a hepatologist for more queries and concerns. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
i'm using herbal medicine
But i'm ok , the next stage i'm fighting for is to get eradicate the virus completly for my viral load is les than 10iu/ml though it's said it's impossible , i'm just trying
- My drug cost 500dollars per month , but it seems as it depends on evrey patients situations , because my father said a reduction was given him ,
-I meet my doctor evry 3months for control
to scam who ? and how ? people have been sending me private messages asking for the medication , ask them if i myself know the drug . I heard from many forums that drugs cost 300dolars per week for hepa B virus somme 500dollars per week ,
I said per month .not per week
Cure is not tenofovir plus interferon. It is a long cure. Cure is Rep9 plus interferon or zadaxin. 7-12 weeks it takes that is what being reported.
Taking nucs is dangerous for a long time over a period of one year. I can attest to that. And I am sure you can too. That lymphodistropy - muscle loss you have reported is exactly what happens on nucs after years of taking them.
So we really need to stop talking about nucs. group of drugs that was developed to slow down cancer. Is not what we need that are them self carcinogenic.
The focus of this forum should be release new drugs now.
Stil on trial. Need mass trial for it to be approved. Still a long way to go. Hopefully future trial will be brilliant. We have a good percentage cure for Hep C, surely Hep B must be coming soon, fingers crossed.
wow!! i have never heard the price of a medication as cheaper as what you have mentioned for hepa B .never
A qts : what is the different b/w suface antigene and hbsag? are they not the same thing? can you give me the differences pls
If you came here to share iinfo on herbs you take please post what you take and how much as well as your labs results. And we want to see several of these to see the dynamics of your progress. That is how you help people.
Dont argue with stefan here. He is one of the most knowledgeble patient-doctors that reallly trully helps people.
But if you believe in herbs that they work which many of us think as well please show your labs in a separate thread.
The problem is that i have noticed that here , people don't just want to here about herbal medicine , they just condemed it , meanwhile i who takes it i'm seeing a diffrent thing diffrent of what they say .
I have asked this qts "what is the different b/w suface antigene and hbsag?" Because i have learned here that it can never be negative with a chronic carrier of hepa B virus , later he said "peginterferon clears hbsag in about 30% cases when hbvdna is very low "
Then i'm lost , a chronic stage is chronic stage , my viral load before treatment was 6log , now i'ts 10iu/ml , if my Hbsag how will you explained it ? That it's b/c my DNA quantification was at 10iu/ml? what brought it down to 10iu/ml? was i in a chronic form at that stage ?
i apreciated your ideas so much , but i'm sorry , i was treated here as a scam , so i don't want people to be afraid of me .if people recieved me here in the begining as you are doing , i would have scanne my exams , but i'm afraid also of people here now .
don't be afraid of hbv people, we are outcasts anyway. Living a miserable life, for the most part. Victimized by big-pharma conspiracy and eugenics health insurance programs in some countries.
So if you have something to share please please post without any drama.
regarding herbs, why people are suspicious of them is because people come to forums such as these and claim miracle cures without any proof or medical records..
You have to understand that HBV progression depends on persons immune system function. Some people do great without meds, some don't at all. Why that is they are not looking into this, or not telling us.
But regarding herbs and other alternative treatments that are reported to work, people like to hear about and see at least some documented proof..
If you take Chanca Piedra show us your base line tests, followed by more tests, blood DNA and liver enzymes are ok. So that we can try it and compare results.. That is how one contributes.
You have a magic tea from Africa, then tell us what you take exactly at least...
"You have a magic tea from Africa, then tell us what you take exactly at least... "
Anything that performs magic can not treat for long , when we talk of magic we talk of immidiate cure 10days , 30days, 2months , as to what i know about hepatitis treatment , but i have been taking treatment for 14months now and i'm still on treatment.
So the herbal can never be a magic tea . if you have been sent by Mrt79 tell her you will have nothing from me .The herbal i'm taking is not good , it's veryvery bad for health , so i can't advise you to take it
Herbal treatments are not real treatments and do nothing. Stef2011 is correct, you can get TDF for less than $100/month - I've purchased before. Company that makes the drug is called Cipla and they're one of the biggest manufacturers in India. Look on pharmacychecker.com for up to date pricing.
"Herbal treatments are not real treatments and do nothing." by djxpress
A Big Fat lie
This is what you have to say about herbal medicines.
1- The majority of them are not clinically controled
2-A stable dosage is not measured in a great number of herbal medicine.
3-Most of the traditional doctors ignors many things in the medical field , for this reasons they lack experience how to combine thier drugs for a better treatment
There are some researchers that deals only on herbal medicine and have some certain knowledge in medical field , that's why they succeed in thier researches .
You want to make me understand that the medications you just cited are produce with the skeletens of lions or elephans ? I best know they are produce from herbs .
I have noticed something here in this forum , which is quiet normal , i'm not the one who created this forum , this forum is out to advertise some particuler laboratories drugs .You are not here to help patients at 100o/o to fine a solution for thier health
Make your adverstisement , but encourage patients to continue on the drug they are taking ,herbal or Pharmacutical drugs if it's going well with them .
If the drugs is going bad , encourage them to stop it . I wanted to change my drugs and command what stef2011 talked from india , a patient here advise me not to make that error , since what i'm taking is good , i apreciated the idea
There are patients that are unable to affort for a drug even if it cost 5usd per month , but someone may advice them a herbal plant for free , what will they do ? die or try it?
HBsAg secretion into the culture media is obteined by soooo many drugs even old cheap generics approved drugs......in vivo is another universe and what works in culture doesnt work in vivo most of the time.unless a substance is used in vivo on humans and for long time it is scam
in vivo, on human trials and for long time:
the only thing to block hbsag secretion on small human trials is rep9ac by replicor and the only thing to block infection of liver cells by hbv is myrcludex which will be soon available
since we have scum guy very often with herbs from africa and philippines this forum is not to discuss herbs but hbv drugs.
we open a channel for herbals and other treatments, i have no idea if still open since most posters were scamers with little follow up
Thanks for the informations
They should be carefull not to put doubt in the mind of patients,ie the way they defend . Because a patient that is taking a drug and a laboratory proves that the drug is good , but they who have never tested the drug ,nor seen it proves with thier mouth that the drug is bad , it makes us feel there's something fishy behind .When there are proves from qualified laboratroies , they should just encourage the patient to continue with the drug and bring fitbacks .if at the end the drug proves to be bad , they can now advice other alternatives , if it's good they can now search out about the drug and help others with .
Well this is what i think , thanks , bye

I agree with veteranb. If tenofovir plus interferon add is "the cure" for hbv, then why do most people on here that try both have failed to cure? I've also lost so much muscle mass. I hope I'm wrong but looks like my cpk is permanently high.
Yes I read plenty. Why ain't you "fully cured" from hbv if TDF and interferon is the "cure"? I'm not talking about responded. I'm talking about fully cured. Why are doctors working hard to find an actual cure if tdf/interferon is the answer? I've checked post from several years back. So many members here have also said they failed to cure on the tdf/interferon combo? I guess they were just a non responder huh, Dr. Steff?
