How To Deal With Hepatitis B?
Good evening, sorry to disturb, I want to ask. What is the normal level of bilirubin for adults? And what is the highest? If hepatitis B is positive, can it be cured by vaccination? And what is the treatment for hepatitis b? How to reduce high bilirubin levels? Thank you
Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Hepatitis B is a serious infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Hepatitis B has symptoms that are not immediately felt and some are not present at all. For this reason, many people do not realize that they have been infected. Some common modes of transmission include:
Sexual contact. For example, changing partners and having sex without safety devices.
Share syringes. For example using syringes that have been contaminated with hepatitis B blood.
Accidental contact with syringes. For example health workers (paramedics) who often deal with human blood.
Mother and baby. Mothers who are pregnant can transmit the disease to their babies during labor.
Hepatitis B infection is called acute when someone is newly infected with this virus. This condition will heal by itself without the need for certain therapies. Only about 5% of adults infected with acute hepatitis B will progress to chronic hepatitis B. Someone is said to have chronic hepatitis B if the hepatitis B virus is still detected (HBsAg positive / reactive) after 6 months. It is better to check HbeAg in this condition to find out whether the hepatitis B virus is actively reproducing or not (and determine the high and low likelihood of transmission / transmission of this virus to others.
Other tests are SGPT / ALT and SGOT / AST are enzymes used by the liver in its work. It should be retained in the liver, but if the liver becomes damaged by hepatitis, more and more of this enzyme can enter the bloodstream. The level of this enzyme in the blood can be measured, and its level shows the level of damage to the liver. Usually, the severity of the damage is illustrated by how many times above normal it will be considered a problem if 3x or more above normal.
While Bilirubin is the main product of decomposition of old red blood cells. Bilirubin is filtered from the blood by the liver, and excreted in bile. As the liver becomes increasingly damaged, total bilirubin will increase. A portion of total bilirubin is metabolized, and this part is referred to as direct bilirubin. If this part increases, the cause is usually outside the liver
In patients with hepatitis B can still function properly, usually the doctor will recommend the use of drug alpha-2a interpreter. If the examination indicates that your heart is damaged, the doctor will give you another medicine. The damage shows that alpha-2interferon is not effective or suitable for you. An alternative that may be offered by a doctor is an antiviral drug
We recommend that you further consult the laboratory results with a specialist in internal medicine so that they get the most appropriate therapy for each person's condition.
