Just got diagnosed yesterday, after having high liver enzymes, for 4 months, and misdiagnosed. It’s a bit overwhelming, was not expecting to hear this. There is so much info to process. Anyway I did join this group and that is a start. I live in Fl and lost my health insurance, it may be a huge problem for me. I do have an appt on the 24th Oct this facility is low cost….have to start somewhere. My biggest concern is the medications. How do they expect people to pay for them. I see people with insurance struggling with costs. Went to the pharm. websites, it is very sad indeed. Any suggestions would be helpful, I have been reading all your guidelines, and they are very helpful. Thanks for listening Best, Samantha
