Hi. I have had autoiummune hepatitis for over six years. I take 50 mg. Imuran daily and my ALT and AST have been under good control. However, recent labs showed a slight spike in these enzymes. This has never happened during all these six years. This showed up in labs three weeks after my second moderna covid vaccination. I am getting fearful that something about the vaccine may have triggered the autoimmune hepatitis to worsen. I was wondering if anyone else with liver disease has had any changes in their enzymes after getting the covid vaccine?
My doctor is having me wait a month and then get enzymes checked again and after he sees those results, we will discuss what to do. I am praying this is just a temporary "glitch" and things will go back to normal. Just wondering if anyone out there has had a similar thing happen. Thanks for any responses and my best wishes to each of you.
