About Me: Male, 43, Philippines, member since Jul 2011
I accidentally discovered that I have HBV when i tried to donate blood when i was still in college. When I told my parents everyone got tested and found out that my mom and all my siblings have it too.
I underwent interferon treatment last 2009 and was able to bring down HBVDNA count to undetectable levels, but 2 years after i relapsed and now it's back to 4x,xxx.
Im thinking of creating a support group for Filipino HEPB carriers that will ***personally*** talk to you about the disease. Though secrecy and privacy is of utmost importance, still dont know how will I be able to start one.
"(Most likely) you are a chronic carrier with a precore-mutant strain
Dont take antivirals just because the doctor said so :) some doctors here in our country have a "jurassic" knowledge regarding the disease.
Pls get the ff tests
The influence of e-anti..."
Would it be OK if you can send me a scanned copy of your Hepa Test from Hi Precision (of course hide your personal info, name, patient ID etc).
Ipapakita ko kasi sa kanila Gusto ko lang kasi mag pa test ng HBsAg na may iu/ml, kasi nga di raw sila nag te test ng ganyan. Thanks
