hbsag decline

very good news my hbsag keeps going down, difficult to say if it is the effect of etv plus tdf combo or the imiquimod i used in 2012 or the maitake supplements i am taking now, anyway what matters is hbsag goes down:

20 apr  2012  7309iu/ml
21 jun  2012  5210iu/ml
16 nov  2012  3687iu/ml
10 jan  2013  4207iu/ml
28 feb  2013  3644iu/ml
27 mar 2013  4163iu/ml
22 may2013  3201iu/ml

the maitake i am taking now is from puritans, i take from 6 to 9 caps a day, it has no sides so i take 3 times the suggested dose.whatever is getting hbsag down using maitake has no sides except the cost which is cheap, if others try maitake they may be able to confirm if it has an effect or not

I am happy to for you and to see the downward trend of hbsag. Since when did you start taking maitaki?
Avatar universal
about 4 weeks ago, it can be a combination of all the tries i did, imiquimod started an immune activation and a downward trend even if it was with ups and downs and maitake might have worked upon that

no stopped ezetimibe immediately as it failed to rise bile acids, so it wasn t blocking hbv receptors.same thing about ibersatan

when do you plan to add peg int?

the plan was to add pegintf when hbsag reaches at least 1500iu/ml

i ll definitely increase maitake to 9-12caps a day, i ve seen cancer patients having response on high dose like 6g maitake daily.a good point of maitake is it should go directly to the liver and stay there for long

Great news Stefano! Do you know how this maitake works? When did you start it?
Avatar universal

we really cant say why it is going down now and it is just a start but if the ups and down stop we may say maitake is helping

they activates macrophages and other immune cells and then they produce interferons.the action is something like the fungus has elements that are seen as pathogens to the immune system and so it activates some immune cells.

We all need to get a pack of it.

7 years ago on some japanese web site I read good results on grifola mushrooms. That they were long treating this disease with it in their traditional medicine. But then the scientists were conducting research of mayetake plus interferon for hbv. They saw.positive dynamics on the disease control and noted  that more data is needed and that they have limited funds for it.

Now seven years later we see that grifola mentioned again that it does seem to rescue the immune system. Helps cancer patients too.

I mean anything we can do to boost our immune system is good. Because it controls hbv and has the power to clear the virus.
