8. take diet low in fat and high in carbohydrates, avoid alcohol,shaaring combs/razors.

Pathologist and Microbiologist Dr. Anju Choudhary's  Response
hi deepu.may14, being HbSag positive is unfortunate but not catestrophic, do not worry and as long as you are asymptomatic you need not bother about getting yourself treated.Being positive means that the virus is present in your body but not active and so as long as it stays dorment you will not do anything active about it. You should try and maintain good and healthy food habits avoid drinking and very fatty food and in general be fit so that the virus is not able to weaken you. Don't know much about ayurvedic treatment for it so cant comment on it. If your partner has already received a full course of Hep.B vaccination then she needs to only get a booster dose when her titers go down or roughly every 5-10 yrs
