I am not a doctor. Some points for you to consider:
1. your ALT was rising together with your viral load before treatment;
2. you had only started treatment two weeks ago, so is it too early for Viread to reverse the trend? You may like to ask your doctor.
Interesting that your viral load went crazy up suddenly after all these years
Thank you for the quick reply. Yes, I know it is still very early for the Viread effect, but I am just worried of these sudden increases at ALT and AST.
Yes, unfortunately, I was okay for a good time. Then, since the beginning of 2014 my HBV DNA, ALT, AST started increasing. I hope viread will be able to decrease these numbers (fingers crossed).
Check your hbeag just to make sure it is still negative
HBeAg was checked on February 9, 2015, and still negative.
Usually it will take viread up to 6 months to make hbv dna undetectable. Where you originally from this way we will know your gebotype
I am originally from Turkey, but I don't know my genotype.
Ok so you most likely have genotype D just like me since we both from mediterrenean
Good news, viread worked.
My ALT level is now 20 U/L and AST is 21 U/L.
What about the virus load? Has it reduce as well?
useless question of course antivirals make viral load undetectable
it just indicates it is too high to clear hbsag by peg or nucs
this said the use of nucs for 5-10years, vit d3, healthy life, immune modulators like gcmaf may lower hbsag.my experience is that when i started nucs hbsag was 5000-7000iu/ml and today by use of nucs, vitamins, gcmaf and peginterferon is 800-1200iu/ml
i guess my hbsg will go very low at 10 years of nucs if i reached such decline by 5 years, also most of the decline by nucs is between 5 to 10 years
