Hepa B carrier
Feb 24, 2006

Dear Dr. McGovern,

I am a Hepa B carrier, the doctor said there's no problem with my liver. my blood carried by Hepa B. is it my life in danger, any cure?

please help me to have peace in my mine. God Bless You.

Response from Dr. McGovern

You can be a carrier of hepatitis B and yet have no liver disease - that is true.

It is simply important to follow up with your doctor on a regular basis (every 6 to 12 months) to be certain that this has not changed to an active disease state.
