would a ketogenic diet help clear hbv?

no, hbv controls our immune system and is not so stupid or weak to be influenced by a diet, unfortunately nothing can clear hbv infection but sequential treatment by tenofovir for 1-3 years and peginterferon add on after that (4-5 years total)

vitamin d can reduce its replication but only by supplements because vit d is lowered by hbv and sun exposure or normal dose supplements cannot incraese it

to reduce liver damage you need only raw fresh unprocessed foods with no chemicals whatsoever, low fat and lw meat, fish oils filtered for metals, useless on hbv but can keep liver regenerating and so without damage

just checked what a ketogenic diet is, this type of diet is extremely unhealthy and damages livers of any person hbver or not

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet:
high fat damages the liver
adequate-protein is ok but from vegetable or little white meat, no red meat, no diaries
low-carbohydrate leads nowhere, it is processed and refined  carbohydrates to increase blood glucose which makes damage, so the problems is refined cereals not not carbohydrates
the answer is orgains-raw carbohydrates which still contain the fibers which block too fast glucose absorption, they must be bio because you have more poisons/pesticides on the surface of raw carbohydrates

Fatty liver is not good for liver, but strangely can be good to HBV clearance. There are some studies showing positive correlation with spontaneous hbv clearance and steatosis.

By the way is bio-milk and home made derivatives are safe to your opinion?

the effect of fatty liver on hbsag clearance is minimum, the effect is due to abnormal alt because of the liver damage made by fatty liver, this of course makes cccdna unstable because there is more cell turnover

but one thing is i have fatty liver and by chance i clear faster another thing is making fatty liver....it is like taking toxic drugs to rise alt so there is more liver damage, more cell turn over and by chance i may clear faster....by chance, not sure, but in the end i may just get cirrhosis or liver cancer by this....

i use very little milk there is too much s*** in milk and who knows how they are fed and which drugs are given.
animals not in the wild are immune suppressed because of stress and no sun so they are given a lot of antibiotics and hormons.......
