If my husband has hepatitis b core antigen & I drink from koolaid jug after him, could I catch it?

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?

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

IMy HBV test results (red cross): Hepatitis B Surface Antigen: Nonreactive; Hepatitis B Core Antibodies: Reactive; HBV PCR: Negative. Do I have HBV?

Cured, but...: If a person's Hep B surface antigen is nonreactive, that means the lab does not find pieces of the surface of the virus. If her Hep B virus PCR is negative, that means the lab does not find the virus's DNA (genes). If the core antibody is reactive that means her immune system REMEMBERS being infected with Hep B. She is cured, but some viral DNA might be attached to her own human DNA in her liver. ...Read more
