Recently diagnosed with auto immune hepatitis. I am a 56 year old male. Have been a social drinker with the odd binges in my early 20's but never to excess. I have been put on prednisone tablets with a reducing dose and will be seeing my consultant in two weeks to be given another medicine which I believe may be Azathioprine. Main issue is that I am always tired. Still working full time. Consultant advised me that my liver biopsy showed I had scarring which had occurred in the last year. On a scale of 1 to 6 with 1being good I was a five. He seems sure that medication will halt the problem and may even see an improvement over time. Clearly a long term condition though possibly for life. Any one else have similar issues or can offer practical advice if you have had the condition longer? Would welcome your comments.
