hepa B cures ?
Nov 3, 2006

My friend is hepaB positive , his doctor( gastro) adviced himto check his viral load HBV-DNA (taqman) result is 3,105 IU/ml, HBsAg w/ titer (eclia) is 4962.0 reactive, his liver ultrasound is normal size with mild fatty infiltration.The doctor said the result is good coz there no need for medication ( the virus is inactive and its cronic). But he wants his hepa B to be "0" , what medications where to buy, how to intake the medicine.Because he wants to work abroad it might be the hindrance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Right now his viral load is low; I don't know if his liver function tests are normal, but if they are, he would not be a candidate for therapy at present. He should have testing every six months to follow up on his infection.

Is there specific diet for HBV patients?
