Hello doctor,

I am diagnosed with hepatitis B in the blood test. I am not feeling any symptoms right now. Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do the below investigations, and I will review the reports. Then we will decide on the treatment.

1. Liver functions tests (bilirubin, enzymes), HBV DNA (quantitative viral load), HBeAg (hepatitis B e-antigen), anti-HBe, anti-HCV (anti-hepatitis C virus), CBC (complete blood count), and HIV (human immunodeficiency virus).

2. USG abdomen (abdominal ultrasound).

3. Fibroscan.

Thank you doctor,

I have done all the blood tests as you recommended. I had recently done the HIV test during my childbirth, but the reports were negative, and I have attached the file.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I checked your reports (attachment removed to protect patient's identity), and you did most of them except ultrasound and fibroscan. We should do the investigation, and if there is evidence of fibrosis, then we will decide to start the treatment. Also, tell us about the alcohol status, as alcohol is to be avoided.


Investigations to be done:

Ultrasound abdomen, fibroscan, family screening for HBsAg (hepatitis B surface antigen) to be done for the parents, spouse, and children.

Thank you doctor,

I do not take alcohol regularly. I usually consume a little once a month.

It is really good that you have your alcohol consumption at normal.
