Welcome to the forum Maggie.
I have AIH as well and winding down on the Prednisone and Azathioprine.
I have lost about
45 lbs, even while on the steroids. I have gallstones as well so I have to keep a healthy diet for that issue.
I am much better than I was 3 1/2 months ago (when diagnosed). I can go a full day of work and hit the gym for a bit. This helps take the edge off the stress from work, rather than drinking.
My bilirubin has been controlled and I have to get some blood work and a Dr visit in the next couple weeks.
Hopefully I can come off the Pred soon, it is giving me acne.
