Mild Lobular Hepatitis with Eosinophils in portal triads

I just got the results back from my liver biopsy but have not talked to my doctor yet.  Can any one help me with what it means. I am a diabetic that is taking vytorin and Byetta.  I am also a genetic carrier for hemacromotosis.  My family history on both sides shows a history of liver disease.

Mild Lobular Hepatitis with Eosinophils in portal triads
Minimal increase in intrahepatocellular iron.

There is mild inflammation in the portal triads with the inflammatory infiltrate including some eosinophils. Also there is mild focal inflammation in the lobules with scattered Kupffer cell clusters. Appropriate studies to exclude low grade viral hepatitis or possible drug reaction.

Most of the iron appears to represent ferritiniron with some hepatocytes caontaining a few tiny stippled deposits of iron. There is a mild predominantly lymphocytic inflammatroy cell infiltrate in the portal triads.  A few eosinpohils are also present in the triads as are a few fomay histiocytes.

Nothing has been done that I know of.  When I first started having weird symptoms they took me off the Byetta for 2 weeks and when the symptoms did not resolve they put me back on it.  Then they same with the vytorin. That was back in April of 2005.

What else can they do to rule out a drug interaction.

Hello,

You are very informed about your test results, I would think it sounds fairly good and if you have any concerns you should discuss your results with your specialist. There are many great medical sites http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=3242

"Appropriate studies to exclude low grade viral hepatitis or possible drug reaction."
