Does a guy who's in remission and has been for several years with autoimmune hepatitis have any trouble with producing children, and if not will the children receive anything from him?

I believe there is a predisposition in some people to autoimmune disease. I have read this in a couple of places. There appears to be a family link with several people in one family having one or more different autoimmune diseases. The link appears to be more prevalent in females, according to what I have read. Talk to your docotr if you are worried. Perhaps a doctor specialising in immune diseases would be able to answer you best. I don;t think liver disease is genetic but I'm not a docotr.
Hope you are able to get the advice you need.\

thank you so much for your info, its actually my boyfriend and something just doesn't seem right about the things that come out of his mother's mouth (or my soon to be mother in law) about what the doctor has said in the past and it doesn't feel right to question him either.  It could be that she maybe telling a lie just to protect her son.  It's not that I don't believe her, but she has been known to do things like this. He doesn't go see his doctor anymore, because its been so long.  It's not a genetic thing for him.  So that's the good news.  I just wanted to get some more info and thoughts, and see if anyone else has came across this.  thank you again, God Bless!

questioning -
You need to get a GREAT deal more information from your potential in-laws. If there is AIH in the family, you need to know.
I don't know enough about AIH to advise you, but your MIL is definitely not a good source.
God Bless - and PLEASE don't make babies until you COMPLETELY understand this disease.

Fiance had HCV, cirrhosis, ESLD, ascites, and portal hypertension. Was transplanted June 2004.  Now, on interferon and ribavirin. Hepatitis C is back.

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

i think that you should go directly to your bf for some answers,,,,,,,if your considering having children with him some day,dont be afraid to ask him anything,,,he should understand your concern,,,maybe ask if you both can go to his dr for a consult,,,,,,,good luck
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
