In brief: Need to clarify

We don't treat lab values.
What diagnosis were you given? Do you have primary biliary cirrhosis proved by serology or biopsy? Is this a way of treating NASH -- evidence is so-so. Have hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, alcohol, autoimmunity, and medication allergy been ruled out?
