2019 Conference Recap.

Nearly 200 patients and family members attended our third national AIHA Patient Education & Support Weekend in June 2019. From presentations from hepatologists and other specialists to social activities with fellow patients, the weekend was a resounding success. We piloted a mindfulness program to give patients tangible tools to combat anxiety and depression. And, for the first time, we offered a series of talks geared specifically for caregivers of pediatric patients. Patients also had the opportunity to participate in an AIH study at the conference and contribute to expanding the knowledge of our rare disease.

“Being surrounded by people who knew exactly what I was going through without having to say anything is a comfort I had been longing for. This weekend was magical.”

I feel I have been among the most fortunate autoimmune hepatitis patients. 

 

As soon as I developed symptoms in December 2019, my primary care physician referred me to a hepatologist at a major hospital. That hepatologist quickly diagnosed my illness and started drug treatment. 

To date, the drugs have worked as expected to manage my primary symptoms and protect my liver. 

Soon after my diagnosis, I began seeking resources to treat the whole me – to manage secondary disease symptoms and medication side effects, to reduce risk of additional autoimmune conditions, to feel that I had control over my physical and mental well-being. 

 

That’s where the Autoimmune Hepatitis Association has come in, with a wealth of information resources and online support forums. AIHA has helped me prepare for my hepatologist appointments with informed questions about diagnostic tools and treatment options. AIHA has helped me make personal decisions about diet, exercise, and stress reduction techniques to improve my overall health. 

 

AIHA has also provided crisis resources in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its free webinars have shared the latest news and information on how the virus affects autoimmune and liver disease patients – information that helps us make informed choices on how to live our lives during this unprecedented time.
