Hi ,
  I have a simple and common question like both of the carriers have in their minds. Can a hep b carrier live a long life without complications and medicines? How much hopeful the patients should be with current available medications and results?

You are right melcul but its a chance to have coinfection. But everyone having Hep b should have a test for the Hep D virus also.
