no it is not a side effect from baraclude, hbv infection itself makes fatty liver and especially vitd25oh less than 30ng/ml (optimum level around 100ng/ml).without vit d the liver develops fibrosis and fatty liver even with no hbv, and also kidneys work 50% less
this is the supplements and religious diet regimen to clear fatty liver in a very short time
also, at your weight and height, checking with this official calculator :
Your BMI ( Body Mass Index ) is 31 . obesity starts from 30 .you have to follow what stef recomanded as soon as possible
how your blood tests look like after 5 years on entecavir ? hbvdna i guess undetectable , hbsag quant ? ?
i didn t read it all with a bmi of 31 that s the disease, with bmi>25 one cannot be healthy, all organs get damaged by fat more than hbv or viruses.
so what i did may not be enough, i was bmi 25 and got bmi 22, i think a lot of gym (i suggest swim) may be needed, but i am sorry i am not expert on overweight and how to lose it, we have good food in italy and bmi over 25 is very rare, at 25 we are already considered overweight
latest research shows that microbiome, vit d and processed foods/bad quality foods may be the source of overweight.lactobacillus reuteri is considered helpful to get back to balance and lose weight easier and all fresh organic vegetables are a must
as to my experience i never lost any weight with exercise but only by changing to organic foods i went from 74kg to 64-65kg height 176cm
now that fatty liver is clear from years i stay at 68-69kg always eating no sugars and organic
I have also sometimes back pain, this might be from virus but not from baraclude, because I don't take any medication
i don't think that this 2 problems can be related...never heard of HBV to be related with back pain .
