I was diagonised with autoimmune hepatitis 3 years ago. This was caused by a virus which attack my immune system and in turn affected my liver. I had blood reading over 8 and 900 which should have been about 20 or 30. I was started on steroids, (15mg per day). This brought my blood reading back to normal. Then the steroids were reduced to 10mg per day. and the readings shot up to over 300. The steroids were increased to 30mg per day and azathioprine was also given, (doseage 150mg per day). This tablet enabled me to lover the steroids, and I am now down to 10mg per day plus the 150mg azathioprine. I just hate the way I look. I have not gained a lot of weight, but look and feel puffy. My doctor has told me that I will be on steroids for the rest of my life. I am 65 years old.
