I am 22 yrs old and just diagnosed with PBC. I don't know my stage yet. In the process of trying to get Medicaid in my state because I don't have any insurance otherwise. I think mine stemmed from my gallbladder. It was small and had alot of sludge in it. So I am thinking that bile got backed up in my liver and that is what caused the PBC. Just trying to reach out to other people with this and see how they are dealing with it. This has completely turned my world upside down.
