AIH hs just been added to my diagnosis. Diagnosed based on elevated liver enzymes and very high AMSA, AMA, and ANA and by liver biopsy. I cannot take any prednisone due to severe steroid psychosis. Suggested interventions have not worked and I very highly reactive. I have to start treatment says my doctor. He has no studies to back up imuran only. He was waiting for a repeat of enzymes and AMSA...and it just came back today even higher. He wants to discuss treatment options.
Please see my signature re all of my known clotting disorder problems esp Factor V Leiden elevtion and Factor VIII Leiden Elevtion and others. I am reading about Willdebrand and it sounds like if i test for this; it will come back positive as well.
I have very heavy periods leading to anemia. My tubes are tied. I have gyn appt to discuss options beyond depoprovera suggested by my pcp.
