If my husband has hepatitis b core antigen & I drink from koolaid jug after him, could I catch it?
Forgive my frankness: Hopefully you've been immunized against hepatitis b, and were immunized before you got married. That'll protect you. Even more, I would hope that you and your husband are doing all kinds of wonderful things together that involve far more intimate exchanges than drinking kool aid. If not, why not? It's well worth the risk. Best wishes to you both. ...Read more

Does drinking beer to about 300 to 500ml, very often, 3 to 4 times a year, would affect my liver, as im hepatitis b, but taking liv52?
Yes, you SHOULDN'T: There is no amount of alcohol that is safe for a damaged liver, and no amount of alcohol that can be safely taken with the medications used to treat hepatitis. The fact that you are willing to risk your health for a few pints of beer indicates to me that, whatever the amount you drink, it is a problem for you. You should remain completely abstinent. Any chance of more damage is too great for you. ...Read more

No reason not to: The present form of the vaccine was not available to infants born in the 60's, but I see no reason for them not to get it. In fact, I believe it is required for most health care systems to offer it to any personnel that have patient contact whatever their age. ...Read more

If you are not immune to hep b (can check with blood test), get vaccinated; use condoms. ...Read more
