Q:

High viral count does not equal to liver damage!

High viral count does not equal to liver damage!
A:

We received a questions: I was told by my doctor that I am infected with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and LFT shows that I have a high viral count. But my liver function remains normal, why is that?

 

Hepatitis virus (HBV or HCV) causes damage to the liver by first evading the immune system, as we age, our immunity weakens and increases the risks of viruses attack to the liver, leading to hepatitis (inflammation of the liver). When liver cells are attacked and damaged, liver function will be affected and become abnormal. 

 

However, if a person infected with hepatitis virus has strong immunity and is able to trigger adequate immune response to the infection, the virus will not be able to damage liver cells easily and affect liver function. This explains why some people with high viral load can still maintain normal liver function.

 

Below is a blood test result of a patient infected with HBV; his viral count is extremely high and yet his liver function is completely normal (without any fibrosis or cirrhosis). 

 

Dr. Howard Monsour stated in his book, “It seems that it is more important ‘how’ your body responds to the presence of the hepatitis C virus in your liver than ‘how much’ virus is in your liver that counts.” [1] When dealing with hepatitis virus, the immunity of the liver that is actually the most important aspect for hepatitis virus carriers and chronic hepatitis patients.

 

Killing and eliminating hepatitis virus is one way to reduce the risk of liver damage, another method is to boost up your body immunity, and this too can stop viruses from damaging liver cells and to ensure healthy normal liver function.

The liver is one of the five vital organs in our body, responsible for over 500 bodily functions. When it is underperforming or not in its best shape, ALT level is the most useful indication to tell how well it is functioning.   What is ALT level? What causes it to rise? Alanine Transaminase, often abbreviated as ALT, is an enzyme that is largely concentrated in the liver. In healthy individuals, ALT enzymes are found mainly inside liver c
A:
Over the years, the goal of hepatitis C antiviral treatments has been straightforward – to bring down viral load to a level as low as possible. And because of this, it is not surprising to see that patients are constantly looking for ways to lower their viral count. We have always had the perception that clear of the virus means clear of liver disease, since the virus is what causes our liver to be sick in the first place. But does low viral load really equals better liver hea

The liver carries out essential functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making new blood and other vital nutrients. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The loss of liver cells turns into scar tissue which prevents the liver working normally, reducing or in some cases, completely losing liver function. Cirrhosis is a long-term chronic liver damage; it is often caused by chronic live

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the

ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is a type of enzyme found in liver cells. When the liver cells are functioning normally, the ALT enzymes should be contained within the liver cells.    You can imagine each liver cells as a balloon, and the ALT enzymes are the air inside the balloon. When the balloon is damaged, the air will be released. And when the liver cells is damaged, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, therefore we are able to find out the l

Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
