I was diagnosed with AIH 10 years ago. I happy to report I have lived a very normal life since. Fortunately, I was never ill from AIH. The only reason I knew I had the disease was from a blood work done during a yearly Dr. visit that showed my liver emzymes were high at over 350. After a series of tests and finally a liver biopsy that showed damage stage 3 I was put on predinose for several months then azathioprine which I have been on for 10 years. All without any side affects. I go to the liver specialist every 6 months and am thankful my enzymes have stayed normal with this medication.
A couple of years ago I went to a functional Dr. who told me that I could reverse the autoimmune disease simply by reducing inflammation through diet and avoiding all toxins. Has anyone else seen this ? I have cut out gluten, dairy, grains and processed foods in hopes that I could possibly stop the inflammation without the use of medication.
Would love to hear if anyone else has been successful with this?
