    Unhappy Just found out my dad has hepatitis b, help

    Hi, well my dad found out he has hep b but the doctor dosen't seem to concerned because he says that the virus is barely noticable but he ordered him to get blood test after three months to see how he's doing, he didn't send any medication. But he told him to change his diet. What can we expect? what steps should my dad take to prevent this disease from growing? does it have a cure? please any info would be helpful

    There isn't a cure for Hepatitis B, but there are treatments used to keep it under control. The way the virus spreads and damages your body is by multiplying and these treatments are used to stop that. You father's doctor may not have put him on anything because the virus may not be active in him. I am curious what eating habits he was told to change though? Other than no drinking or drugs a doctor has never specified a diet for me? Also you will want to make sure your dad is seeing a gastroenterologist who has experience in dealing with Hepatitis B patients and not just his regular physician.
