I was a Hepatitis B carrier due to parental transmission. My doctor advised me taht so long as T take care of my health and ALT remained normal, I shall not fear about it. He further informed me that if ALT remained normal, there is no clinical drug to cure Hepatitis B.
I was rather desoperate to get rid of this virus which in my opinion, was a timebomb in my body. As such, I had sought second opinion from another specialist doctor at Hospital, Singapore and his advice was similar. Subsequently, I went to Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur for another opinionn and the specialist doctor advised me that he will treat me with interferon "Intron A" injestion provided my ALT double the normal figure. Since then, I went for blood test every six (6) month to monitor my ALT. During this period, I also sought Chinese medication, but to no avail.
After 1 year of monitoring my ALT figure, I was then treated with Interferon injection by the docter when my Alt was 136M/L. I was hospitalized for one (1) day to observe any side-effects. For the next six (6) months, I was treated with " Intron A" injection thrice weekly and blood test every two (2) months. During this period, my body was weak, like having flu symptoms and my white-cell count was low. Upon completing six (6) months of interferon treatment, anti-HBe was detected but Hepatitis B-DNA was also detected with virus>40,000,000 copies HepB DNA/mL against the allowable figure of <400.
Doctor informed me that since interferon treatment had not successfully prevented Hepatitis B virus and an alternative drug was requinred in which he recommended to take "Zeffix" Lamivudine-3TC. As such, I was treated with Lamivudine and continued to have blood test to monitor its effectiveness every two (2) months. First medical report showed encouraging result with Hepatitis B-DNA not detected (<400 copies), but no anti-HBe and ALT was 82u/L. Icontinued with drug for another 3 months but this time, medical report showed Hepatitis B-DNA was deteced at copies, no anti-HBe and Alt was 36. The subsequent report after 2months showed Hepatits B-DNA was 700 copies, no anti-HBe and Alt was 33. by this time, I had already taken Lamivudine for 8 1/2 months and the results were confusing.
I had then decided to stop taking Lamividine and since then, no treatment at all for next 8 months until I met with Dr.Lok. After taking his medicine for 1 1/2 years, I had my HBV-DNA less than permissible figure of 0.0001 pg/mL and Anti-HBe was positive,AST and ALT normalized. I followed up wite the necessary viral and liver phus renal function tests for another 10 months in order to make sure that e verything was alright. To my greet delight and relief,all tests taken showed that I was cured by Dr.lok's Chinese medication.
6個月的干擾素治素結束時，Anti-HBe出現，但HBV-DNA依然存在，其量為>40,000,000 Copies/ML，超過標準值<400 Copies/ML。
由於干擾素（interferon α)未能奏效，醫生因而建議使用拉美夫錠（Lamivudine-3TC），商品名稱Zeffix。在接下來服用拉美夫錠的6個月期間內，我每2個月抽血檢驗一次，以評估其療效。第一次的報告相當令人振奮；HBV-DNA降到測不出來的程度（<400 Copies/ML），但Anti-HBe未出現。ALT 82 IU/ML，再服用3個月後發現HBV-DNA又回升到4,600 Copies /ML，Anti-HBe仍未出現，ALT 36 IU/ML。再2個月的服用結果是HBV-DNA 700 Copies/ML，沒有Anti-HBe，ALT 33。至此，我已服用Zeffix 8個月半，但令我很失望，結果卻那麼不理想。
我因而決定停止使用拉美夫錠Zeffix。在接下來的8個月期間內，遇到陸庭譯醫師前，我完全沒有任何治療。經陸醫師用中醫治療1年後，HBV-DNA 降到標準值<0.001pg/ML（約Copies/ ML）以下，Anti-HBe出現，AST與ALT恢復正常。確定療效得以維持，我持續追蹤檢驗HBV-DNA、肝功能、腎功能10個月，所獲結果顯示陸醫師已根本治療我的慢性B型肝炎，心裏的大石頭終於落下，令我感到非常欣慰。
