Hi, Thanks, But sorry to ask you silly question like what is the full form of bmi ? and what do you suggest ,can i do the test again with empty stomach this time, will that harm me for repeating it soon ?what is meant by interquartile range in fibroscan?
Hi, Thanks again.
i was empty stomach, but the dr was not able to take proper reading, he tried several times. then he ask me to wait for sometime then shall try again. only in my case, others got their readings.
dr told me no need of empty stomach you can eat , so i ate one apple as already it was too late. then after that i was called again then with proper hand posture machine showed readings. mine is 5.3 kpa. successrate 56%. Now, do i need to do the test again as i ate apple ? what about these results ?
Hi, THANKS ! do we need to be empty stomach before fibroscan ? and when is it safe to repeat next time 3m - 6months?
HI, THANKS ! so there is only one companys machine worldwide? what is it name?
Hi, just want to know are there different kinds of fibroscan machines or only one ? which is the best ?

Hi Stef, I came to know that I have Hep B in last year, and doctor told me that I am chronic carrier,since then I am having regular check ups for HBs Ag, HBV DNA and HBe antigen. In my latest report I have HBs Ag > 250 iu/ml, DNA Qunat = 126 iu/ml, ALT = 45 and HBe = -ve
6 months before the result was HBs Ag > 250 iu/ml, DNA Qunat = 747 iu/ml,ALT = 79 (< 40) and HBe = -ve,
Nowadays I feel some pain below my right ribs, I have not started any medicine yet. Please suggest what should I do to control this disease.
Thanks so much for your reply.Iv not been feeling well in the liver area.I'm worried that I might be infected if my boyfriends hep b has mutated and vaccine doesn't protect me againest it.His surface antigen is +. Surface antibody is -.E antigen is -.E antibody is +. Liver function test is not normal. And DNA is 10 to power of 6.Do you know if s gene mutation is the only type of mutation thats not protected my vaccine and how would we know if he has that mutation? We are not able to see a specialist for a few month cos there's a long waiting list so I'm very worried. I'm wondering how I would be able to tell if he infected me with mutant virus...Should I check liver function and DNA?Sorry I have so many questions, any help would be so much appreaciated.
Hi I have a quick question.does hep b vaccine protect against precore mutant hep b? I understand it doesn't protect against S protein mutant since it's surface protein, just not sure If that's the only type of mutation it doesn't protect.thanks so much
Thank you so much Stephano. I will start looking for the foods you mentioned.

Hi. I won't stop acupuncture as it has really helped me in many ways, but the herbs I am willing to stop. Thank you for the referral to Heptech. Unfortunately, I need a Dr. in order to get the products, but I will talk to them and see if they can help. Do you have first hand experience with their products?
Thanks again, Rivll
