Like everyone here, I had a multitude of annoying and worse autoimmune problems, and see a good rheumie. He recently found I have Primary Billiary Cirrhosis and my family has confirmed another type of autoimmune hepatitis AIH1. They call this syndrome Overlap syndrome. Sort of like having MCTD. Which we have too.
My rheumatologist is the steroid king in my book, he does a great job. Other docs just don't seem to know how to prescribe steroids as well. And I don't want to be getting steroids from multiple doctors. I don't know if the AI liver can be treated by my rheumie, or should be. I wish he would. I know that liver judgments as to the condition of my liver and such might fall to the gi.
I know some people here have kidney problems and I wonder how that works, the nephrologist and rheumie working together? Who treats what and how? thanks for any help you can give. I need to go back to Mayo, just waiting for test results and local gi doc visit. I need to have a local person here to deal with any problem if I end up in the ER.
