AIH and Covid-19

It has been an unsettling time for everyone over the last few weeks – but especially for those AIH patients asked by the UK government to ‘shield’ themselves to help protect them from the covid-19 virus. The instructions and guidance have been changing but at last it seems relatively settled.

Full details for those people with AIH in the UK can be found via the following links:

What is AIH?

Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is an uncommon condition whereby someone’s immune system attacks their liver. It is a controllable condition but cannot at this stage be cured. More information can be found here.
