Hi, I usually post on the UC board for obvious reasons. I have UC. Last year I had a really weird virus that messed with my ALT and AST. For some reason the doc did a ASMA(I think that's right) and it was 1:360. I brought it up to the GI doc at the time, they checked my liver enzymes and said it was fine. So, I mentioned it to my current GI doc(who is great), and he was suprised that nothing else was done. He is rechecking my ASMA and said he may have to do a liver biopsy. Autoimmune Hepatitis sounds really scary. Isn't a liver biopsy risky??? Why exactly would a liver biopsy have to be done? Does a high ASMA mean AIH? I am already on Azathioprine for UC is that a problem? Any answers would be appreciated.
