Hi PBC family,
PBC is a rollercoaster ride isn't it? But for now I'm gonna enjoy my good news. Had some extensive labs done recently. My liver had been aching as well as terrible muscle aches too. I have to be on RA drugs that can complicate the whole liver issue... anyway, after 2 rounds of steroids and upping my Sulfasalazine for this RA, my liver enzymes still went down. The URSO is keeping my Alk-phos steady. It fluctuates between 138-180. Right now it's at 148 down from 157 two weeks ago. Other liver enzymes are in normal range for now 🙌.
I had family visiting for 3 weeks and cooked a lot. (That means "ate" a lot) Let's just say I wasn't sticking to my strict diet. I still didn't have any alcohol... too scared to go there still. But I did make my mama's Enchiladas and we had Chinese twice!! Not to mention buffet style breakfasts.... Ugh!
I'm back on the straight and narrow and just happy that this big lab work-up came back on a good note. I'm still taking my supplements and still trying to drink lots of water.
Prayers for all of us always!!
DX PBC 10/16 early stage, DX RA 4/17
