I love your pic! I took almost an identical pic a couple years ago when I had jaundiced and was away at school and trying to show my parents what was going on. I have since been diagnosed with AIH but the day I woke up and my eyes looked like that I freaked! Now I use my pics for powerpoint presentations in school when I talk about Hepatitis.
Well, he told me to stop cold turkey, and have blood drawn every two weeks. I'm going to wait until the kids are back to school to tackle the issue. My liver never hurt until they put me on the Imuran, I cut it to half 3 months ago and blood tests have been fine. I think I might ween myself off instead of going cold turkey, and get a better handle on what I should and shouldn't eat. Does you liver hurt taking the Imuran? I have been doing lots of reading up, and I know there are triggers. On the naturalist end, they say the liver is the one organ that can regenerate itself and that reversal of fate is possible. So, I keep reading!!!! Thanks for the "note".
I was told today that I can try going off the Imuran, so I am curious how you are doing since you've been off of it. New to this forum, please let me know how your health is doing. Have you had a blood count since you went off the Imuran?
