Hello, nuts_on_line,
You have been diagnosed with Hepatitis-B for ten yers now.
You continue to show abnormal liver enzymes eventhough
you say that you are functioning normally. The problem with
chronic hepatitis is , it can gradually progress to advanced liver
disease including cirrhosis and lead to liver cancer. You have not
been on any treatment for the condition. You don't want to wait
till it is too late. I advice you to see a gastroenterologist or an
infectious disease specialist who takes care of hepatitis patients
and has a large group of them. You need someone with experience
on how to handle the complications or side effects from the good
medications that are now available. The sooner you get the treatment,
chances for cure are better.
Hope you do this soon for your own sake.
I wish you well.
