Hello Mr. Iwan,
Diagnosis and therapeutic decisions can not be seen based on the results of investigations alone, it is also necessary to take anamnesis (interviews), physical examination so that the results can be accurate. If you only refer to the results of the lab and ultrasound, chances are you have chronic hepatitis B that is accompanied by cirrhosis of the liver.
Initially, people with chronic hepatitis B usually do not feel anything for a long time. Patients can only seek treatment when they experience complaints caused by damage to liver cells, such as yellowing of the skin (jaundice), an enlarged abdomen due to fluid buildup (ascites), swollen body or other complaints. At this time these complaints have arisen that liver damage has occurred. The doctor who examines you is the one who knows which therapy is most appropriate for you.
Treatment of chronic hepatitis can include antiviral drugs, interferon injections, or liver transplants:
Antiviral drugs, such as entecavir, tenofovir, lamivudine can help fight viruses and slow down liver damage. These medicines are taken long term.
Interferon injection, usually used in patients whose liver function is still good. Used for patients who avoid long-term exposure or patients who want to get pregnant in the near future
Liver transplant, if the liver damage is very severe
At this time, the one who can determine the right therapy is an internist who treats you. Discuss your lab and ultrasound results with your doctor and the appropriate treatment.
