vinny...absolutely have kidney and liver enzymes checked periodically when on meds that will affect them.
As well, just the fact of having UC can cause autoimmune dysfunction of liver or kidneys.
Get a copy of your results any time you have them...
I would think that when on immunosuppressants or biologics, one would require
the tests for sure every 3 months...would have to check it out.
I do have UC related liver disease and get the liver and kidney enzyme tests every 6 months.
