benign for most carriers with no treatment required, just have hbsag quant in iu/ml by elecsys or architect , hbvdna in iu/ml, fibroscan, all every year

ultrasound every 6months

hbv genotype once

when you post all tests we can tell you if treatment is necessary.if you want to cure it you have to start tenofovir irrespective on tests and add on pegintf when hbsag less than 1000iu/ml

stef, is it good idea to start antiviral even when one is in immune tolerant phase? I mean normal ALT. Is there any comparative study on the effect of antivirals for patients with immune tolerant and immune clearance phases?

no to know if immune tollerant:
hbsag  very high
hbvdna very high

fibroscan less than 6kpa (perfect healthy liver)

ast alt less than 30 men, 19 women

immun tollerant has no immune response so no damage.i bet you did not read all our posts.....hbv makes no damage but is even making liver cells healthier, it is our immune response to make liver damage.no immune response no damage

no because you have no damage but if you want to clear hbv once and for all test your hbsag quant in iu/ml and then we see if peg directly or tdf and peg add on later

immune tollerant: no risk
inactive very low risk

hbeag neg
hbvdna und and hbsag less than 1000iu/ml low risk

hbeag pos
high hbsag and high hbvdna low risk

the risk is correlated to degree of immune response, genotype C has higher risk
