I had never heard of autoimmune hepatitis so I have been reading a little about it.
I am not a medical person, but just my personal opinion is that I think your doctor is
doing the right thing by referring you to a hepatologist. You really need to get
started on some type of treatment for the hepatitis asap. I never did find a
reference that it is caused by the thyroid, I wonder if he meant that since they are
both autoimmune diseases, they are both caused by something that is causing your
body to attack itself in different areas of the body.
You mentioned that you have elevated thyroglobulin antibodies. Do you know if your
TSH, free T3 and free T4 were checked? Do you know what the results are? If you
don't know the values I would definitely call and ask for the numbers. That should
give you a good idea if your thyroid is also causing the problems. Autoimmune
diseases cause fatigue, so it could be both the thyroid and hepatitis. Either one of
them or both could also be causing the muscle and eye problems. I would also ask
if they checked the inflammation with a C reactive protein test and a sed rate.
Have you seen the hepatologist yet? Please let us know what you found out and
what he recommends for treatment. I hope you can get some relief soon.
