what test i should undergo 2 knw the iu/ml of my hbsag?i got my hbv dna today the viral load is 15million ul/ml is this 2 high?if my liver s not affected wd the virus does it mean tht im gttng fine cs before my alt is 120...
you are perfectly healthy if hbvdna is so high and normal alt, it means you have no immune response to hbv and so no liver damage
hbv makes no damage to us it is our immune system which fails to clear to damage the liver, so you are perfectly healthy and just need to check ast/alt every 3 months, when you will find alt higher than 50 and lower hbvdna it means immune system is starting to make damage and only then you may consider treatment.
your status is called immune tollerant and can go on until 30yo and more, being immune tollerant is very very healthy so do not make any treatment now otherwise you may get to immune clearance nd just get liver damage
you are not cure of hbv it is just that hbv is not a virus tht makes damage to us, it is our immune system to make the damage, so if your immune system cant see hbv you are ok, but you are full of virus and more infectious than any other carrier
is there a way to lose the viral load in my body wd out taking any med?
you have to keep the high viral load becase it makes immune system blind and if immune system is blind it can damage your liver.your enemy now is your own immune system not hbv virus, as long as immune system is blind you will be ok, the virus itself is even beneficial because liver cells work better when infected by hbv with no immune response
i wnt to be a healthy carrier,extend my life 4 long so i can stil wtch my children growing...
you will as long as your immune system will stay blind, to lower hbv load you have to wake up your immune system and this will damage your liver
just worry about therapy when your immune system wakes up and start to kill your liver cells
i mean if you keep immune tollerance (no immune response) you will have highest hbvdna and hbsag but no liver daamge.the key to understand this is: the damage is made by immune system and not the virus, so as long as there is no immune response there is no damage and it is best to keep status like this with no interventions
