Hello Dr
Sep 22, 2012

I just want to find help from u. I just find out 3days ago that I had HBV and I asked my Dr if any medication for this setuition and she said there is no.any treatment should I recommend to my self or to show the doctor. Thanks

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are several treatments for hepatitis B, but not everyone needs treatment.

You will want to know more about the virus in your blood (HBV DNA) or whether you have an elevation of liver tests (ALT).
