Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello, shakir,
From your viral count , you do have active chronic Hepatitis B. Apparently
the Homeopathic treatment is not effective. You do need standard drug
therapy using effective anti-viral drugs. There are newer oral drugs and
also Interferon type of drugs which are highly effective although you need
close supervision and monitoring of blood tests. You do need to see a specialist
could be an Infectious disease one or a gastroenterologist who has been
treating Hepatitis patients.
You need to know all your liver tests including Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase,
ALT,AST,Prothombin time, Protein levels, Complete Blood count and also
Geno Type of the Virus to see the response to treatment.
I wish you well.
