Thanks to all for the support towards me-- the newbie pbc-er! If I can laugh about it, I think I'm gonna be ok!
I just don't understand a few things. I am asymptomatic, stage 2, But, I can't understand... my liver numbers were not even super abnormal. Just had ama (don't know what titer) ASt= 42 ALT= 37 ALK PHOS= 198 . How does that figure with how bad the disease is? How does one know how long they've had this? It's been about a year and a half since I had the high numbers, which then went normal, then to high again. Is this a good sign?
Ah well.. just looking for something to hold on to! Thanks again, all! Pat at the Jersey Shore.
