HBV reactivate treament
Dec 10, 2005

My doc told me that it is so much easier if I get treated by the time the HBV is reactivated. Therefore, 6 - 12 months screening is very important. Please confirm if that is true. Thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I think what your doctor is referring to is that you want to follow up your hepatitis B status for 6 months to see if your body will clear it on its own before you dive into treatment. Yes I agree.
