I had bloods done last week. I am praying that they are not gonna tell me chronic, altho I am getting myself prepared for it. My situ is kinda weird as I have all the signs still of acute but way out of the time slot given for acute. But hopefully the immune boost I am getting from these pills will help kick out last bits and get me clear....ooooh plz do say a prayer for me. Much appreciated.

Thanks for answering that. It gives me some hope that maybe my immune system is just a bit slow. I still have all the lab signs of acute but the last bits of virus just won't budge and yet I am in my 8 month period. I am presently on cherry juice but was thinking about the mangosteen. I think both are very good for boosting the immune system. I am just gonna have to pray like you and hope HE is listening.

I also never got no medication for this i did eat very well though at times. A lot of Acai berry and mangosteen juice that i found in the health food isle. I don't know if this helped or not. I just felt drawn to do it.

i still felt sick past my 6 month mark but didn't get tested.  I found a doctor closer to home in January 09 and had the lab work drawn up but then i put it off because i guess i would be scared to here the results. But i finally got the courage last week and went and had my blood drawn. I felt confident it was gone since i have not had any body aches for about 2 months now (8 month mark at that time) I felt that even though i herd that if you have this longer than 3 0r 4 months then it's chronic that my body is just slow to get rid of it. I also prayed a lot.

I was like you diagnosed in Aug 2008. All my levels went down to all but negative and doc was sure I was gonna clear it but last test still showed positive. He thinks it's as a result of being diabetic as I am now over the 6month mark. How long did you test positive for? Did you at any point test positive past the 6 month mark? I am interested to hear as I am worried about this window period in my case.

if it says non-reactive for HBsAg then you don't have the virus. When were you diagnosed with it in the past?

on my blood work there was about 50 different things. Like white and red blood cell counts everything thing come back good. So does non- reactive mean negative for hbv? Thanks so much!

If your HBsAg is negative then you don't have hepatitus. What else was on your blood test?

Needed to add all blood counts came back great! If someone needs to know them to determine if i have this or not, i'll post. The only thing that came back low was SGPT/ALT which was 26 out of 30-65. Which i think uti infection? Everything else was very good. Thanks!
