My son is almost 3 and has no diagnosis. He has symtoms of auto immune hepatitis but the panels come back negative. When it all started his ALT and AST were close to 3000 and he was jaundiced. He has had 2 liver biopsy and is on Prednisone for the last 8 months and just started Imuran. His health is generally good and he is in school. I am looking to find someone to compare notes with, and see if we are doing everything. Also since he has no diagnosis we have no idea what to expect, anything from medication all his life to liver transplant. The uncertainty is the worst.
