antiviral drugs don t eradicate virus so they are useless if there is no virus replication and no liver damage

multivitamins are useless because chmicals, you need to check what vitamins are you missing from blood tests and take them only if you are missing some, if you take without checking levels you jts make damage and if you takes chemical vitamins you probably make damage

you might need these but only from organic sources (diet or expensive vitamins from natural extract pills) and only after you see you have defincency:

selenium, blood levels which boost immune system 130-150, all other levels although might be normal decrease immune system

vitamin D, 50-60ng/ml (from little sun exposure if possible),  other levels are normal but they don t boost immune response

vitamin C, E from diet

as you see only small ranges among nomral ranges boost immune system, other normal ranges do nothing, so taking multivitamins without control is not good at all

food supplements safe like silymarin?
yes it is but not when on antivirals,

more potent on liver fibrosis and cancer preventio:
3 cups of coffee or more daily, 153gr of bluberries daily, blackrise, all foods rich in antioxidant

if you search under HR or hepatitis researcher you will find the most imporant and interesting posts of this community.this researcher posted in 2007-2008

but all this is useless if you have hbvdna detectable and alt higher than 30, otherwise you must first block virus replication otherwise damage on liver is endless dispite your diet and supplements
what is your hbvdna level?
