Hepatitis B is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis virus. The incidence of this disease is quite high in Indonesia. Hepatitis B is transmitted through direct contact with the blood of someone who is already infected with this virus and also through contact with body fluids through injured or open skin or mucous membranes. To diagnose the presence of hepatitis B, it cannot be known easily through symptoms because in the initial infection the symptoms that are caused are very mild and do not even show any symptoms.
The following are some of the tests performed from blood tests that can be done to determine the presence or absence of hepatitis B infection:
HBsAg is a test to assess the presence of the virus in the body. By mentioning positid, it states the presence of the hepatitis B virus in the blood and can transmit to other people. However, positivity does not determine whether the infection is acute (recently infected) or long lasting (chronic). HbcAg. This test is to assess that the infection is acute or chronic. A positive result indicates that the person has a chronic infection (it has been running for a long time) or it can also indicate that there is a healing process from acute hepatitis B. Anti HbS states whether antibodies are formed to fight infection. If the reactive results indicate the presence of antibodies against the infection which are also obtained through vaccination. In your case where it was checked 2 years ago and there are still positive results, it can be said that there is still a virus in the body. However, it needs to be confirmed by doing another test. In addition to the 3 tests above, it is also necessary to see if there is a disturbance in liver function by checking liver function (SGOT / SGPT) and so on. Regarding what herbal medicine you do, whether it is recommended by a medical professional or based on information from relatives. The need for a detailed examination by a competent doctor and determine the type of infection you are experiencing, whether acute or chronic. Thus a handler can be done according to your current condition.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
