Autoimmune Liver Disease Profile-3 Test

Autoimmune Liver Disease Profile-3 Test

also known as: Liver disease test panel - autoimmune

Autoimmune diseases are disorders in which the body's immune system attacks its cells and organs of the body with proteins called autoantibodies; this process is called autoimmunity. Autoimmune liver disease is also called autoimmune hepatitis. Autoimmune hepatitis is a chronic disease of the liver. It is a disease in which the body's immune system attacks the normal components of the liver, or cells and causes swelling and liver damage. The immune system generally protects people from infection by recognizing and destroying bacteria, viruses and other potentially harmful foreign substances. Autoimmune hepatitis is a serious condition, which can worsen the condition if not treated properly on time. Autoimmune hepatitis may cause cirrhosis and liver failure. Cirrhosis occurs when the scar tissue changes the healthy liver tissue and blocks the normal flow of blood through the liver. The liver failure occurs when the liver stops functioning properly.

No special steps are required to get ready for the treatment. A blood sample is taken from a vein. The blood sample is sent to the lab for testing. Why the Test is performed: Autoimmune disorders are responsible for liver disease. A few of the major diseases are main biliary cholangitis and autoimmune hepatitis. This group of tests helps your health care provider diagnose diseases in the liver.

Liver transplantation has become a revolutionary treatment for those who are suffering from end-level liver disease, primary liver cancer and acute hepatic failure. The replacement of damaged liver of damaged liver in the treatment of liver disease is effective in the treatment of liver disease, but subsequently maintenance of surgery to prevent transplantation and the rejection of the disease is equally important. After a successful liver transplant after the hospital, it is important that you include the following practices to get successful long term results after transplantation. Hygienic Surroundings Diet and Nutrition Regular Checkup Medications Regular Exercise

Treatment can slow down, stop, and sometimes can reverse the liver damage. Drugs and Medication Immunosuppressant drugs can be used to prevent the attack of the immune system. Such medicines include 6-Mercaptopurine and Azathioprine. Taking antioxidant medicines can compromise your body's ability to fight other infections. Corticosteroid, usually in the form of prednisone, can treat liver swelling directly. They can also work as immunosuppressant’s. You will need to take Prednisone for at least 18-24 months. Some patients should continue taking medication for life to prevent recurrence of AIH. Prednisone may cause some of the serious side effects, including diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension and weight gain. Surgery A liver transplant can treat AIH. However, the disease can sometimes recur even after a transplant. As per survey, there is a 90 percent one-year survival rate for patients who have a transplant. The five-year survival rate is 70 to 80 percent.
