Dear Bhaskar,
There is no restriction in diet in Hepatitis B. But as liver is affected, you may take more carbohydrates and less fats.
It seems your medicines are not working. You may ask your Gastroenterologist to change the medicines or you may contact an INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST.

Hi Doctors,
I just done a complete blood test for Hep. B
And the results say:
HBsAg:positif;
Anti-HBc:positif;
AST: 25; ALT:15;
HBeAg: Reaktif(S/CO: 1,373.056);
Anti-Hbe:non reaktif(S/CO: 43.54); HBV-DNA:>1.10x10^8
My doctor said that my Hep.B virus are still inactive that's why I can't get any interferon therapy. Is that true? How can I make the virus become active so I can start the therapy?
Thank you.
