    These look like the same test results as before? Your ALT is a little high which suggests slight inflammation of the liver.   Are you on any medication for the chronic Hepatitis B?  Your Hep B e antigen being positive (why is it in brackets as negative as well?) means you have an active virus which is probably why your ALT is out of range.  A negative result means you still have the virus, just with lower activity.  I suggest you ask your doctor about being put on treatment to suppress the virus, as long term it can lead to cirrhosis and cancer. Well done stopping drinking.  The liver is good a de-toxing itself, even a detox won't stop the virus damaging it I'm afraid.

    I really think it ALL pertains to drinking.

    Stay stopped if you can and get another test.

    But do not allow yourself to think...well it only happens when I drink...and then drink..because eventually the liver will be damaged if it is already reacting to the drink.

      It may be the alcohol. However Henry does have Hepatitis B which causes liver inflammation followed by fibrosis and cirrhosis if the viral load is left unchecked. Certainly drinking on top of having the virus won't help at all, but even a teetotal person with chronic Hep B will have liver inflammation.

      Henry hasn't said if he is on any treatment for the Hepatitis B. It used to be the protocol that patients were only treated when their viral load went above a certain number, I think it was 3,000 units, but they have now realised that any active virus, however small, will over time cause liver damage. I'm not sure why Henry is unable to say whether he is on medication or not.  Maybe he has never had a PCR/DNA test to check the viral load.

      Hi Henry. I think that may be your answer to your slightly elevated Liver enzymes. Have you discussed medication for Hep B with your doctor?  I was. Diagnosed with Hep B in the late 1970s but never had medication for it until, no surprise, I was diagnosed with cirrhosis and liver cancer. Unless you treat the virus it will continue to damage your liver (you look young in your profile pic).  You are also at risk of infecting others. Did you know HBV can be transmitted in semen?

    Below my blood test results ( after taking Indian Gooseberry (Amla) juice from from 3 Indian Gooseberry combined 1 hour later with Olive Leaf Extract (2 teaspoons x 2/day) plus lemon juice (from half lemon) + 2 teaspoons of honey. This treatment is combined with intake of the following:-

    A) 3x Omega 3(with 1,000mg fish oil, EPA-180mg,DHA-120mg), 

    B) 2x Vitamin E ( 400I.U.)

    C) 2x multivitamins

    In 20 days the results as follows:-

    Alkaline Phosphatase down 28% from 192 to 139.(<130) alanine="" transaminase="" (sgpt/alt)="" down="" 28%="" from="" 66="" to="" 48=""><37) aspartate="" transaminase="" (sgot/ast)down="" 20%="" from="" 77="" to="" 62=""><41) gamma-glutamyl="" transferase="" (gamma="" gt)="" down="" 37%="" from="" 532="" to=""><51)

    very happy with test results
