That was interesting.
I’m not actually seeing the Liver Guy for regular treatment, it was basically a consultation for Hawt Doc. I guess there was discussion of what other options were available for my PAH given my liver seemed to be kina meh. As far as Liver Guy’s concerned, my liver is okay even though my ALT levels are consistently elevated. Even my cholesterol levels are normal, which is fab.
Given that I’m on all sorts of stuff, he doesn’t think that the Imuran is causing the liver issues, that’s a pretty rare occurance.
The interesting thing he mentioned was that he wanted to do some genetic testing just to cover all the bases. He doesn’t see there being any likelihood of me having any strange or rare conditions that’ll crop up, but on the off chance I might have Wilson’s Disease (where there’s some weird absorption issue of copper) or some other condition with the over absorption of iron, this’ll answer any of those questions. It would seem that when I went to the lab last week, they failed to do the hepatitis testing. LAB FAIL.
He doesn’t feel that there’s any need for me to have a liver biopsy but should things change in the future, it will happen.
So yea, that’s it.
