Treatment for autoimmune hepatitis

Back to

Diagnosis and tests


Most people with autoimmune hepatitis need treatment.

This is called immunosuppression and uses a combination of medicines: corticosteroids and another immunosuppressant.

Immunosuppression reduces how active your immune system is. This stops it attacking your liver and reduces the inflammation.

The main aim of treatment is to improve your symptoms and your blood tests. It will also prevent or reduce scarring and long-term liver damage and failure.
