Fibroscan: none
Med I take: First Interferon for 4 months (I felt really bad) / then I took entecavir 0,5mg for 4 years.

do you think I should suggest to my doctor start a new treatment with tenofovir before the exames detect that the replication is back?
Better to continue antiviral treatments unless you have total clearance.  Avoid having food containing top much iron. In my experience, my hbv are activated after taking iron supplements because of iron deficiency anemia.  It was inactive for decades I am assuming I got it when I was 13.
Please read too much iron, not top much

Brazilian1983 stopping Entecavir 0.5mg is not a good idea because the virus 'll come back again. So try to speak about this issue with your Doctor.

Im having a lot of problems with doctors here, the first time I felt symptoms the doctor prescribed corticosteroids, so that probably is the reason that I do not recover and became chronic , there is no support group, no one to talk about Im very happy that I found this place. thanks
