Hey, I was searching the internet for enlarged intestines and found this post. I also have a similar history with mild autoimmune results. I am seeing a rheumatologist due to chronic elevated sed rate, but have a history of elevated liver function also. I have had mild ANA titer elevations. In treating me for RA, we ran into problems with my liver, and on seeing a liver specialist, was found to have severe fibrosis due to a metabolic disorder. I am being treated for autoimmune hepatitis. I used to have terrible intestine symptoms until my gynecologist cut multiple adhesions in intestines during my hysterectomy then I had another laproscopy where they pushed my intestines way down away from the liver. I still get a lot of swelling at the intestines. It was so weird to read such similar symptoms. Please post more if any of you get more answers. I think the liver is still a mystery to doctors, even the ones who specialize in it....Wonder if the enlarged intestines is because of liver problems???
