What are the typical symptoms that autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) patients experience? We break them down so you know what to expect.


​The initial and long-term symptoms associated with AIH are commonly different among patients. There is a wide spectrum of complaints in patients with AIH. It remains unclear why these symptoms are present in some and not in others. 25% of patients are asymptomatic when diagnosed, with abnormal liver tests likely found when testing for other health issues.
