HIV HbsAg positive
Apr 29, 2012
Dear Dr.,Recently i found that i am infected by hiv hbsag positive virus and i am 26 years old so what should i do to prevent me from this virus.So please tall me about the steps to take for the prevention.
Response from Dr. McGovern
You will need treatment for both viruses.
Truvada combines two pills into one - which fight both HIV and HBV.
You will also need surveillance for your HBV infection every 3 to 6 months with blood tests, and an ultrasound of your liver every 6 to 12 months.
Best of luck to you!
