Hepatitis is inflammation of your liver. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Both HIV and hepatitis B spread through blood, semen, mucus, and other body fluids.
What is worse HIV or hepatitis B?
HBV is less likely to be fatal than HIV, and many people who carry the virus dont have symptoms. But because more than 250 million people live with chronic HBV infections, more than 7 times the number with HIV, its global death toll now rivals that of the more-feared virus.
Can HIV and hepatitis B be cured?
People with HIV co-infection should continue to use drugs active against both HIV and hepatitis B as part of their lifelong HIV treatment. There is currently no treatment that cures a majority of people with hepatitis B.
Does hepatitis B ever go away?
In most cases, hepatitis B goes away on its own. You can relieve your symptoms at home by resting, eating healthy foods, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding alcohol and drugs. Also, find out from your doctor what medicines and herbal products to avoid, because some can make liver damage caused by hepatitis B worse.
