From this study (1 month ago):
The autoimmune hepatitis is de novo. Approx. 2 yrs after transplant, ALT and AST went from 40 or 50 to 400 and 500 in 1 mo. Drs. tested (Ultrasound/liver biopsy/arteriogram) thinking it was hepatic veno-occlusion or vasculitis. 2 yrs after tx, my liver is almost entirely cirrhotic. Experienced massive body swelling (ESLD-Chronic Hep B)with seepage thru ankles and broken blood vessels around upper ankles. Diagnosed w/ GVHD and Autoimmune Hepatitis. Drs. had decided to re-transplant but called it off. Nausea is severe and debilitating. Abdomen very distended.
From this study (2 months ago):
Over the past year and 1/2 my bilirubin has gradually increased from 1.0, 1.3, and now 1.6. I have been on three prescription drugs for at least 15 years:
Omeprazole, Celebrex, and Simvastatin. Is one of these drugs causing an increase in blood bilirubin. My last blood work was in May; the bilirubin may now be higher. Also, I have had 3 attacks of diverticulitis within about two months. Can these attacks be related to high bilirubin levels?
From this study (2 months ago):
Besides 2 -500 mg each of Ursodial , I take Vit.D(1000), one multi-Vit.,one calcium(500),one omega 3, and 2 Senecot.
