1 Answer:

Hello Nur Lashira, thank you for asking.


Hepatitis B is a liver infection by a virus that can be acute or chronic. The hepatitis B virus is transmitted through blood contact (for example through syringes and shavers), blood transfusions, sexual relations, and from mother to fetus or baby. The diagnosis is made based on complaints, physical examination, and serological examination. Complaints are similar to other hepatitis serotypes, namely yellow in the eyes and skin, dark brown urine, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, pain in the upper right abdomen, lethargic weakness.


Serological examination looks for antigens (viral proteins) and antibodies (particles that function to eradicate microorganisms that cause disease). Your positive HBsAg states that there is a hepatitis B virus antigen in your body. HBe positively states that the current infection is very active and contagious. While HBsAb and anti-HBe which are negative states that your body has not formed immunity against hepatitis B. If the serology results remain positive after more than 6 months of symptoms of acute disease, then you have chronic hepatitis.


You can discuss this with the treating doctor. The doctor will determine whether your infection is acute or chronic. The therapy has antiviral properties to suppress viral replication, as well as further therapies to maintain and improve liver cell function. Keep consuming foods with optimal nutrition, try to rest bed rest for several weeks.


Thus our brief explanation, hopefully helps. Regards
