****Pls help me to treat my Hepa B****
Sep 13, 2009

Hi Good day! In 1999, I was diagnosed to be Hepa B reactive. Every now and then (6 mos interval), I often go for lab tests for my liver. Herewith below my lab results recently:

Jan. 11, 2008

HBS-Ag : Reactive HBE-Ag : Non Reactive SGPT : 65 HBsAg : 2.5 Reactive Anti-HBs : 0.141 Negative HbeAg : 0.245 Negative Anti HBc IgG: 0.108 Reactive Anti HAV IgM: 0.112 Negative Ultrasound : (Impression) Sonographically normal Gall Bladder and pancreas. Fatty infiltrative changes of the liver.

Dec. 23, 2008

HIV/Aids Test: Non Reactive VDRL/RPR : Non Reactive HBsAg : Reactive FBS : 105.80 mg/dl SGPT : 54.5o IU/L

Jan. 10, 2009

Anti HAV IgM : 0.009 Non Reactive HBcAb : 0.949 Reactive (reverse) HBeAb : 0.865 Reactive (reverse) HBeAg : 0.009 Non Reactive HbsAb : 0.016 Non Reactive HBsAg : 5.419 Reactive SGPT : 54.50 Ultrasound : (Impression) Normal sized Liver with fatty changes. Normal bile ducts, gall bladder and pancreas.

Alt : 36.2 HBsAg: Reactive HBeAg: Non Reactive Ultrasound: Normal Gall Bladder and Pancreas. Rule out diffuse hepatic parenchymal disease. Correlate clinically and with laboratory parameters.

Kindly interpret my lab test results. So far my doctors have not advised me any medicines or supplements to take. I want to have a final solution to suppress this viral infection. I am so worried about it. Pls advise any medication. Thank you very much and more power to you.


Response from Dr. McGovern

I don't see any tests for HBV DNA which is critical to understanding if your disease is active or not. Please discuss with your doctor.

How do I know if my sister is dying?
