I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
These investigations (WBC 13.9, MCH 31.9, RDW 18.5, Absolute Neutrophils 9.7) are usually deranged mildly in an inflammation and autoimmune disorder. None of these are alarming presently. A mild high WBC and absolute neutrophils denote mild grade infection or inflammation which can change the mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and RDW of the red blood cells.
The globulin, AST and ALT are liver function tests. They would derange in autoimmune hepatitis but presently are far better than when you were admitted so you are responding to the treatment. You may need to continue steroids for some more duration in the same dose till all the investigations comes back to normal.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
You are very welcome.
There are some patients (about 30-40%), who may not need steroids at all later on . Unfortunately some will require off and on steroids as liver enzymes may dwindle in future. They are likely to return to normal and stay normal for long duration in whom autoimmune hepatitis is mild.
It is privilege assisting you.
