Some people infected with Chronic Hepatitis B will develop liver cirrhosis or liver cancer.
That is why testing is important to prevent the chronic changes of the infection. Hepatitis B can be tested with a simple blood test. The test will look at the presence of antibodies or antigens and help determine if there is acute or chronic Hepatitis B infection. Regular HIV testing in Elgin is also important, especially since this is the only proven method of accurately detecting the virus. Treatment may vary depending on if the Hepatitis is acute or chronic. Acute Hepatitis B usually includes rest, adequate fluids and nutrition, and sometimes hospitalization. Chronic Hepatitis B treatment is usually under the care of a specialist in that field such as a gastroenterologist or liver specialist.
