I found out not too long ago that I have Chronic Hep-B. How is this different from Hep-C in relation to fatality of the diease? Will Hep-B automatically lead to liver falure? Are there any people out there that have not had treatment and somehow HBV just was in their body, without doing anything?

I am still waiting for the ultrasound test of the liver and they have not said anything about a liver biopsy yet.

I was told that I got it while dealing with blood as a public safety 1st responder and was probably exposed to infected blood.

Hi Doe,
I find your post today and I find your questions absolutely normal
for a man with a such diagnosis.
B Hepatitis as you probably know is an infectious ill which work at
the liver level.There are much more hepatitis ( A - H ).The most knowns
are A and B,which are treatable.Of course some results (36%) are registrated and in C Hepatitis but in the B Hepatitis the score are in the domain of 56-65%.
What is important? First time is the diagnosis.More cases presented as B Hepatitis
are not if a confirmatory test are not performed.If unfortunately a such test
confirm an surface antigen (HBsAg) need to investigate the level of the antibody
(AntiHBs),HBeAG,HBeAb,HBcAg and HBcAb.A general biochemical investigations is necessary,an ultrasound,scintigraphic investigation and if is possible an anatomycal investigation on a biopsy.After these investigations the hepatitis specialist will be decide the treatment (interpheron et al) and the future laboratory investigations.
If a such treatment will be not introduce the HBeAg,HBeAb and biochemical liver prophile will be periodically investigated to establish if the hepatitis is in evolution or not.Any relation between B & C Hepatitis.Do not forget : B Hepatitis are treatable.If anyone say another please contact me.Good Luck and God Bless You !
The answers at yours answers are : No;Yes;Probably Yes.

Hi,
I had Hepatitis B since 1996. I learned it by accidently. I have been cured since then. When I take medicine liver enzimes' levels become normal, but after that unfortunately again relapse. I have been cured two times with interferon (Roferon A) and Lamivudun. Now, I use only lamividun (one tablet each day). I hope everything will go on good way.

I recently was diagnosed with Hep B back in Oct. 2003. The doctors waited until April to start treatment with PegInterferon Alpha 2-b, powder for injections, once a week. From October my viral loads have ranged anywhere from only 1,000,000-50,000,000. Then, they labeled me of course as having Chronic Hep B and then thats when I started treatment. During the course of the injections, we have seen the ALT go from 239 to JUST recently only after the first 8 injections to only 70. Does this mean that I am getting better? Does this mean that I might be cured, and is it possible to "sero-convert" and be CURED completely after treatment? God I hope so, I am so scared, only 25, and haven't told my parents, I am just so alone in this. Any advice?
*Chris*
