I was just confirmed as having this rare and awful disease, and I'm pretty devastated. I'm having a Liver biopsy next week, which of course will tell me more. Right now my symptoms are elevated Liver enzymes, mild weight loss, fatigue, itching, positive ANA, Rheumatoid Arthritis (not severe at this point) and very dry eyes. In addition to not knowing what to expect re: progression (I know it is a very individual thing), I'm DREADING the thought of Prednisone. Can anyone tell me anything about alternative treatment to Prednisone? Thank you very much. I'm 54 and female and am very fit and healthy prior to this.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
