Diagnosed around 5 years ago with PBC and was on 1500mg urso and nothing doing. After biopsy February I was told now stage 1 child’s cirrotic 😭 but NO symptoms like ZERO.
I’m very lucky to now be on Ocaliva - Obeticholic Acid 5mg daily
I started treatment on Monday 9th April and had my bloods done on Monday this week and saw my GP to go over my results.
My ALT is 48 (this is actually in the normal range! Whaaaat!?!) before treatment on new drug it was 131 🙌🏻
My cholesterol is down from 7.95 to 5.37 🙌🏻 (Not on any statins)
My alk phos is currently 328, pre treatment on new drug was 847 (highest it has been was 950) I know not in normal range but a third of what it was!
Extremely encouraging results!!!! I knew it was going to be good as I feel like a new person. I just got tired before but now I feel like ME.
Positive vibes going forward. I see my consultant on 21st June I’m expecting a high 5
