Autoimmune hepatitis and xarelto
I started taking Xarelto in August 2015 for a DVT. The doctor told me there was no need for follow ups unless I noticed obvious symptoms. In October of 2016, just on a whim, I asked my doctor for a blood test on my liver and kidneys. I never felt comfortable not having a follow up being on this drug. The results came back with my liver enzymes HIGHLY elevated, and after a liver biopsy, I was told I had a fatty liver and auto immune hepatitis. I asked the doctor if that could have anything to do with the Xarelto, and was assured it was not related. After doing research on my own, though, I have read it could, though rare, be related. Anyone else out there come across this situation after taking Xarelto?
