Answer

There are many excellent medications for hepatitis B now. These include: entecavir, pegylated interferon, telbivudine, lamivudine, and adefovir.

Prior to starting medications, you should have evaluation of your serologies, which includes hepatitis B surface antigen, HBe antigen, HBe antibody, and measurement of your virus to be certain it is active with an HBV DNA test. You should also have liver function tests performed serially to determine how active these are as well. Then your physician will discuss with you as to whether you need a liver biopsy to determine how much disease activity you have.

I wish you great success with your HBV treatment.
