I'd be interested to hear what you learn.

@geedle12, My PCP and my GI, suspected that I had Autoimmune Hepatitis. He prescribed prednisone to see if my liver functions would drop. He wanted to reduce the prednisone because of side effects, and he added Imuran in order to do that. This was 20 years ago, so I don't remember everything, but I do remember liver biopsies were involved. I did not have AIH.
He was very concerned about osteoporosis, too. It is a symptom of all liver diseases. He did a terrific thing for me - he ordered my 1st bone density scan!

Geedle, I like the suggestions that Colleen has made. I would like to ask you if you have been checked by a gastroenterologist (GI) because they have specialty training and knowledge of liver disease that our PCP's don't have?

How are you feeling? Does your body seem to be accepting the higher does of the steroid?
