Hello everyone - I am new to the board and also to new to HBV treatment. I’ve been infected since I was 8 according to my mother but I suspect I was probably infected since birth and I’m happy to meet everyone and am looking forward to support everyone anyway I can.
I am 38, recently I had my ALT levels at 200 and HBV DNA for the first time in the millions. My specialist put me on Vemlidy and I’ve been on it daily for a month and a half now…very little side effects…I had another ALT test ordered by my doctor a little less than a month after my treatment began…the ALT was still elevated but down to 98 from 200 My fibroscan was at 4.8.
just wondering…what are the odds of drug resistance being developed? according to my doctor I’ll be on this drug for the rest of my life…and also…I am an occasional marijuana smoker…would that be ill-advised? no alcohol ever.
