Chronic hep b can lead to birth of hepatitis D

Chronic hepatitis b patients can also become infected with hepatitis D.  If you have CHB, you can become co infected with Chronic Hepatitis D.  The hep B cell turns into hep d.  Hepatitis D infection can only be infected with people with hep b.  

If we don’t already have enough to worry about.  Geesh!!!!  Now this.  Research shows hep d infection can progress to cirrhosis and HCC, 70-90% of time even if hep b load is treated to not measurable by anti viral.  

Anybody else read or know about hep d.  I just found out today by random dumb “luck”....:(
