For Patients Caregiver Tips and Advice For Medical Professionals

Autoimmune Hepatitis

In 2005 I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis and later with NAFLD. Was also told that I didn’t qualify for a liver transplant. I felt hopeless after talking to my liver specialist as I was walking towards my car I decided that the illness wasn’t going to own me. Did some research in my case and began to talk to my ex-colleagues at my former job. I was the head of the prenatal department.

I was prescribed prednisone medication and took it for 18 months, developing to many side effects and taking more prescriptions to counterattack the symptoms. During the last ten years I decided to get stem cells treatment out of the country, My Bio-MD doctor is amazing, I also eat healthy, stop any and all processed foods, practice meditation, yoga, go camping to heal, and enjoy life. My MELD is at 7 for the last two years. Unfortunately, I have other health issues but do not include diabetes, high cholesterol or heart problems which will make my disease more challenging.

I left my husband after 30 years of marriage. Starting from zero for the last three years has been a roller coaster but worth it and doing a lot better. I have always been positive so that helps me tremendously.

I am a warrior and will die from something else but not from this disease.

Be your own advocate. Ask questions. Do your own research. Ask others that you can relate to. Make healthy choices. Share as much as you can.
