Hepatitis B Support Group

Hepatitis B virus infection may either be acute (self-limited) or chronic (long-standing). Persons with self-limited infection clear the infection spontaneously within weeks to months. There are currently several treatments for chronic hepatitis B that can increase a person's chance of clearing the infection.

    Hi guys, anyone taking viread for a while? If so, how long, any noticeable side effects? I understand this anti viral is well tolerated, but has anyone had a bone density test? And finally, do you take vitamins or supplements such as calcium/vitamin D? Does anyone workout regularly?
