Suffering from Hepatitis B Need your help

Jan 5, 2014

Month befour I was detected positive for hepatitis B Initialy the LFT test shows AST/SGOT 1200 ALT /SGPT 1400 And now the report are [ After 15 days] HBV viral load by TAQ MAN 20300 IU/ML AST/SGOT 115 ALT SGPT 477 Alkanie phosphatase 110 Hepatitis B core IGM Serum 32.41 Hepatitis B E IGM Serum Negative Hepatitis B e Antibody 0.370 Hepatitis B e Antigen 1.97 Alpha Fetoprotein 6.92 One DR. suggest me to take Tenofovir 300 mg for 1Month & Second Dr Suggest me wait for 1 month to take any treatment after one month repeat the test for AVH-B & LFT Presently I am following second Dr. Please suggest me.

Sir, you suggest me the following, "Your laboratory results would suggest acute HBV infection. It is possible that you will clear the infection on your own and not require HBV treatment. It is not unreasonable to wait a month or so and repeat the lab tests to see what your status is."

Now i have done LFT test results is as follows Total Bilirubin - 0.80 Bilirubin Direct - 0.26 Total protein - 7.6 Albumin - 3.9 Globulin - 3.7 Albumin/Globulin Ratio - 1.0 SGOT - 40 SGPT - 83 Alkaline phosphatase - 83 G-Glutamyl Transferase - 21 Lactate dehydrogenase - 155 Dear sir please suggest me.

:You liver function tests and enzyme levels have improved. However you don't indicate whether additional HBV testing was performed. Thus, it is difficult to interpret what is going on regarding the virus without virus specific tests.

Dear Sir, I have discuss my LFT report with my Doctor, he suggest me to wait for next 4 month [ up to March 2014] and after that go for the HBs Ag test. Meanwhile do LFT test every month. Kindly suggest me shall I wait up to march 2014. Or go for the virus specific test. Presently I am single shall I think for marriage?

Please suggest me.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would agree with your doctor's recommendation.
