You can visit any Ayurveda doctor. You can also visit a hepatologist. When you go, take a latest report of HBSAG blood test from a good lab. We have very good results to lower the values to undetectable range. You may undergo virechana karma at Ayurveda centre.

Hello, to know at what level of hep B she has we need tests such as HBV DNA level quantitative, HbeAg envelope antigen, Liver function test, and ultrasound abdomen to look for liver echo texture. Kindly consult a general medicine doctor or gastroenterologist. Your babies need to be checked and given HEp B immunoglobulin at the time of delivery and vaccination if negative.. All your family members need to be checked for hep B status and vaccinated if found negative..
