So, i saw the Hepatologist at St James in Leeds. I,m glad that i asked for a hepatology referral, as i was finding that gastroenterologists were not so specialised. I had a fibroscan -only took 1 minute! This showed stage 1 fibrosis, and the doctor said that my LFT's have come down a little now, so i don't have to start urso, which i,m very pleased about as he has confirmed that there is NO alternative for its source other then from harvesting it from dead animals. I have it in writing too. So some information for those of you that wanted to know, and no disputes please, think that the manufacturers and hepatology consultants know their stuff. Good news for me though.....at least for the time being!!
