excuse my english!
You have autoimune disease ? Which tipe of antibody ?
You are "Yellow", have you icter (great bilirubinemia)?
I have VHC (Cirosis)and after treatment with IFN+RIB I make autoimmune disorders (anti LKM 1); the dr. propose me to make treatment with prednison and azathioprine (imuran), but another dr. told me that is immposible, because that treatment grow-up my viremia. I have also thrombocytopenia and anemia - autoimmune which generated a great bilirubinemia, so I am "yellow".
Be carefull with your treatment !
