"There's a myth that anyone who has a liver problem has brought it on themselves" This quote is from a Crohn's disease patient living with a blocked portal vein hoping for a liver transplant (Independent 31st Oct 2010)

More blood tests

Another raft of blood tests to compare with the first. Plus some more, to check my hepatitis status and whether I have an autoimmune version.
In 'medspeak' an ASMA and AMA blood test.
In layman terms an 'anti smooth muscle autoantibody' and 'Antimitochondrial autoantibody' blood test.
Not to be confused with checking midi-chlorians as they belong in Star Wars. This is someone with too many Midi-chlorians who wasn't Anakin Skywalker.
