Six-monthly blood tests are important for those with hepatitis B

Regular blood tests pick up early signs of liver disease such as cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver cancer. Up to 70 per cent of your liver can already be damaged by the time you start to feel ill.

Most people have no symptoms, so you may not know you have it. 100,000 New Zealanders live with chronic hepatitis B and 60% remain undiagnosed. 

Left unmonitored hepatitis B can lead to liver damage and eventually can lead to liver cancer. Ongoing damage to your liver can be prevented and we can help with ongoing monitoring. 

If you know that you have hepatitis B you can book a blood test today.
