Hi Everyone
Just wanted to give you an update, Christy is out of the hospital and doing a lot better, still having a lot of pain. Her test for the liver is almost normal. She spoke to her lupus doctor today and said do not take the imuran that is could have caused it or it could have been a flare. She will get more test done next week and a follow up apt with the Gastro. Dr. and the lupus doctor the next week. After reading about Imuran i believe that the medicine caused the problem. Has anyone else had problems with there liver? Thanks Angie

Hello Angie,

I'm glad to hear that your daughter is home and feeling a bit better. Although I take imuran I don't know how high the frequency of liver problems can be with it. I've been on it a year and haven't had any problems at all. I really hope they can find another med to help her as well as imuran if they do decide that that is the cause.

I too have blood tests to check liver function and everything else every three months.
