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!
