How to live with Hepatitis B with healthy liver?
Liver is a silent organ that doesn't complain too much. We usually don't pay attention to it until something serious happens. Hepatitis infection may occur with limited or no symptoms, but once the ALT level keeps two times higher than normal value, that indicates liver is damaging continuously. If cure and protection is not enough, it can develop into liver fibrosis, cirrhosis and even liver cancer. About 25% of carriers will die from cirrhosis or primary liver cancer as adults1.
Being a Hepatitis B carrier, some people can still have good health and long life while some people’s ALT value fluctuates, or may even suffer from Chronic liver injury. So, what is the key to stop virus attack and does all patients must use drug treatment if there is a high viral count?
The study “Hepatitis B Virus: Inactive carriers” states that if the carrier can maintain ALT level in a normal range, then drug treatment is not required and show very low risk of cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Oppositely, an increased or fluctuated ALT level is usually a sign of liver disease (injury) and treatment is needed. From this, we can see the importance of normalizing ALT level. In fact, ALT level is the key of chronic hepatitis B, no matter the viral count, treatment is not needed if you keep the ALT level in a normal range, meaning that having viruses in the body is actually acceptable as long as it is not damaging the liver.
In the view of this, rather than worrying the replication of the virus, is it not better to protect our liver and control ALT level in advance? Normal ALT not only means that the liver is healthy, but also prevent patients from needing any kind of medical treatment, as well as preventing liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. The destiny of hepatitis B carrier is therefore determined by their ALT level!
When you are extreme fatigue or with poor appetite, do not ignore the signals and take any risk. Irregular lifestyle, dining outside, Alcohol all make the risk higher. Other than doing regular check, we should pay extra attention in liver cells protection and function enhancement.
The main target of drug treatment is to kill the virus, it cannot enhance the growth and recovery of liver cells, may even increase the burden of liver. YHK is a unique product with scientifically proven effects in liver protection, it has the ability to normalize ALT level quickly without side effects. By keeping ALT level normal and avoid liver inflammation, hold the first line of defense and ensure long term liver health.
