23 YO Male diagnosed with AIH just under 2 years ago. I am on Imuran now. Just had most recent lab work and it shows....
Low WBC 3.8
Low Hemoglobin 12.5
Low Hematocrit 36.3
Low Platelets 126
Low Neutrophils 32%
High Lymphs 48%
High Eosinophils 11%
High AST 93
High ALT 70
High GGT 87
I thought Imuran was supposed to SUPPRESS the immune system. I was going over my initial labs, and even when my AST/ALT was 2200/1400 none of my WBC counts were high? I'm having a hard time understanding this. Is there something else going on here? Your thoughts are great. Personal experiences are even better.
I understand that high eosinophils generally means an allergic reaction, but I haven't had so much as a sneeze or runny nose.
