I was speaking to my friend yesterday about the lack of knowledge that the medical world has regarding many diagnoses. Although medicine has made great strides it still has a long way to go. Nutrition definitely is lacking and most doctors don’t know and can’t advice on nutritional changes.
I can’t imagine having intractable pain. You’re right, with liver problem you can’t tolerate Lyrica, Neurontin or anything else. Even Motrin is a problem. Did you ever try Accupuncture? Sometimes other forms of medicine have good outcomes.
Well, keep going and never give up!

Hi everyone. I have known for a while that I have some sort of autoimmune disorder , but there has never been enough laboratory evidence for a diagnose.the question was whether it was autoimmune hepatitis or PBC. It was very obvious to me during my last pregnancy. (extreme fatigue, itchying, right upper quadrant pain, raynaud on my finger and intolerance to fatty food). It was so interesting to watch the autoimmune panel slowly change over years. I changed my diet completely. Now there is no fast food ever.no processed food and tons of veggies. My symptoms dramatically Improved with diet and exercise. Then I added intracellular cleansing and this helped further. It is not easy. I have to be aware of everything I eat all the time. Now the AMA is positive and my ANA is greater than 1000. The eczema is very uncomfortable. But I am still running and have a full time practice. My goal is to keep going as long as I can. So I planned to do 2 1/2 marathons and several 5 k and 10ks this year. I have 3 kids and I am always busy with them. My medical practice will continue as usual.
