NASH and primary biliary cirrhosis are separate diseases, and I am not aware of a connection between the two.
NASH certainly has been associated with other diseases, such as metabolic disorders, abdominal surgery, medications and toxins, and Wilson's disease. However, I am not aware of a connection with rheumatologic conditions such as Sjogren's syndrome, or Hashimoto's disease.
There are no proven treatments for NASH. Weight loss is generally recommended. Some liver specialists recommend vitamin E as well as insulin-sensitizing medications, such as metformin. These options should be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Both Sjogren's and Hashimoto's are highly connected to celiac disease (so is psoriasis). Please check into that possibility. You'll be amazed how much better you'll feel on a gluten free diet if that is the problem. Just be sure you have all the testing done before trying a GF diet. A GF diet trial is not a good way to test for the disease. Good luck.
