I have been diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis for one year now. Last year liver functions were very high. But for some reason (not know)they lowered so i didn't have to take any medication. I felt happy again and started thinking about having children. Now my liver functions ASAT and ALAT are around 300 to 400 and above. I alo have liver pains and pain on the right side in my belly. And this all make me terribly depressed. My whole world up side down again!

My doctor is giving me two weeks before another bloodtest to see if its going up and then he probably want to start with medication. Prednison for 2 years he says (min period). I heard about the different bad side affects and i am terried. Can anyone help me? Hopefully with some positive information.

Thanks Loes
