What treatment should a hepatitis B carrier undergo?
Q: I am a hepatitis B carrier taking Lamivir 100 mg tablets as per the doctor's advice. What treatment do I require to recover completely?
A:If you are truly a carrier for hepatitis B (inactive carrier), you may not require any treatment. Treatment is recommended for patients with high viral counts, and elevated AST and ALT. A liver biopsy may be required in some patients to determine the need for treatment.
