IU Health Hepatologist Dr. Craig Lammert talks about a disease that affects hundreds of patients but often goes undetected – autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). He’s making it his mission not only to treat a rare disease but to also bring together patients who are diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH).
“We want patients to fully understand their disease and become strong advocates for their health,” said Dr. Craig Lammert. “AIH can lead to cirrhosis and even a liver transplant. It’s often referred to as the ‘invisible disease’ because many providers and loved ones don’t understand the consequences of the disease,” said Dr. Lammert.
