Suggest Treatment For Fever And Elevated Liver Enzymes

my son is having flu like symptoms / headache. We have taken him to the ER and they are saying that his liver enzymes are high. They ran tests yesterday checking for hepatitis. The test results showed negative for hepatitis A & C but subjective for B, but they thought that maybe from the his vaccine. What does all this mean??

Hi thanks for contacting health care magic.
Noted your child have flu like symptoms with elevated liver enzymes...
Your report negative for hepatitis a...

If you had taken hepatitis b vaccine then you have protective antibody antihbs by it.
But usually HBSag positivity not there.
So do your test for detection of HBSag by ELISA test...

Meanwhile take low fat diet to rest liver.
Fruits given more.
Hydration is maintained...
Avoid heavy work....
Udiliv tablet can be given...

Regular follow up needed.
Esp.check for HBSag positivity after six month just to rule out chronic infection.

Take care.
