Can hepatitis B be cured by dialysis?
Hello doctor, I have hepatitis B. I checked at a general clinic, the doctor said that I was very sick, so I had to undergo dialysis to separate the virus. I am very worried, I hope to consult a doctor about this problem. Because according to my research on the internet, I don't see any mention of dialysis when I have hepatitis B. I look forward to hearing from you soon, thank you doctor.

Hi, hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus, which can cause liver failure, cirrhosis or even liver cancer if not monitored and treated adequately. enough.
Treatment for hepatitis B depends on the stage (acute or chronic), the severity and the test results. Treatment used includes antiviral drugs, drugs to support liver function.. depending on each specific case. Dialysis cannot remove the hepatitis B virus according to the information you receive. You should register for examination and consultation directly at the Liver - Gallbladder - Pancreas specialist for the best information.
