May 30, 2010

my friend got hospitalize w/ acute exudative tonsillopharyngitis and find out she got blood infections,fatty liver and got positive w/ hepa b, why does she have to go hbv dna testing?does this mean that she's already infected w/ hepa b?what are the possible signs for hepa b?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Depending on what HBV tests were initially performed, a HBV DNA test would be a logical next step.

Decrease CD4 with no viral load detection
HBV viral count descreasing on its own?
