What You Need to Know About Your Chronic Hepatitis B Treatment

Beginning treatment for your chronic hepatitis B is an important step toward helping protect the health of your liver. This section provides a general overview of treatment goals and how to get started with treatment. You’ll also learn here why staying on treatment is so important. Even if you feel fine, you should see your doctor regularly to monitor the health of your liver. The hepatitis B virus can silently cause damage to your liver. Your doctor may recommend treatment, such as an oral medication, if your lab tests reveal that you’re at risk for liver damage. It’s essential that you follow your doctor’s advice because chronic hepatitis B can lead to serious liver problems if left untreated.
