unless you have cirrhosis or hepatobilliary diseases, this was useless
ultrasound is mandatory every 6 months
and fibroscan once a year if liver has damage baseline
your doctors are ridiculous, change them
OK, Thanks Stef for your suggestion. I will change them.
Liver fibrosis can never be predicted as normal on normal alt level in hbeag-. Alt fluctuates a lot in hbeag- so may be u missed times to check wen they were elevated and causing inflammation.
As Stef suggested, I will have to find better doctor.
Most docs have views apart from wat we discuss here coz they go more on straight theoretical approach they ve read and rarely modify treatment strategies. An example is treating hep b with peg 2b which is theoretically is same as 2a. But practically in some trials 2a has been proved superior.
Most docs don't consider hbsag quant as standard parameter to judge treatment response and still on orthodox strategies.
Ram if u want best treatment of hbv in india then go ilbs delhi. U will find treatment at low cost.1000 rs for fibro.
