-B is a serios and devastating health issue in INDIA.There are 45 million cases in INDIA and are ranked after china.chronic HBV infection - 4% of population.It is a serious issue in sense of economics,infectivity,cirrhosis
and cancer.3/4 of HBV in India is through mother baby transmission.Natural history of HEP-b depends upon the host immune response.Vigorous immune response results in acute hepatitis(ALT more than 400) and it results in either death or in 95% cases recovery.5% cases become carrier,cirrhotics,cancer etc. Get yourself investigated for LFT's,ultrasound
abdomen and HBV- DNA.If ALT raised then get a liver

done.Treatment available is in form of viral suppressive like ENTECAVIR,TENOFOVVIR AND TELMIVUDINE and IMMUNOMODULATORS like PEG- IFN. BE in touch with your Gastroenterologist for the guidance and treatment.Thanks and good luck.
