Hi Apriyanti Rahayu,
Hepatitis B is an infection caused by the hepatitis B virus which causes inflammation of the liver. This virus can actually recover in the acute phase with a good immune system, but it can also take place chronically in people with low immune systems, such as people with HIV. Transmission of hepatitis B infection through the use of shared needles such as drug users, a history of risky sexual behavior or because the blood donation process is not sterile.
To declare recovery from this virus, it is necessary to examine the response of the antigen-antibody contained in the body to the virus. SGOT and SGPT examinations show inflammatory conditions that occur in the liver, whether they are still ongoing or have subsided, however, this needs to be supported by the results of consultations with doctors and clinical examinations so that it cannot be stated only by laboratory tests.
In hepatitis B infection, some suggestions that can be made include avoiding risky sexual behavior, using condoms when you want to have sex, taking medication regularly, avoiding the use of injectable narcotics and also avoiding alcoholic beverages. There are no special restrictions on the diet of people with hepatitis B, but eat nutritious food to keep the immune system in good condition. Don't forget to also have regular check-ups with your doctor to check your body condition and evaluate the hepatitis B infection process.
I hope this information is helpful.
