Is it fatal
Feb 5, 2003

Can you die from hep B and how long would it take, or if you get treatment is the prognosis bad or good.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Yes, you can die from Hep B but you can also be vaccinated so that you will never get it. It is also very treatable now with new drugs that are very effective. It is important if you have it to get treatment early and with someone who know how to treat it! Good luck! DTD
