Just joined this site so working my way through things at the minute.
But thought I'd share a little bit about myself.
I have autoimmune hepatitis which was diagnosed in 1997. For years I have been on a low dose of azathioprine which I had no problems with and could live life petty normally. Then in 2015 my life became pretty stressful and I feel this triggered a flare up for my liver and thyroid, as I also have an underative thyroid. After been put on steroids my LFTs improved but had lots of side effects and other medical problems too. Eventually all settled and I continued on 5mg prednisolone. Then in April this year I began to feel unwell again and once again my liver function rocketed after yet another stressful time. The steroids didn't seem to be working as quickly and in was given IV steroids to speed things up. My LFTs are now coming down again but I'm feeling terrible from the side effects. My meds have been adjusted and hopefully I will start to feel better soon. I joined the forum as I feel it would be nice to know other people's experiences and have people who actually know what it's like to suffer with this disease.
Look forward to chatting with you soon
