I am 62 and was diagnosed with PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis) and ulcerative colitis seven years ago, after several major cholangitis episodes. For several years I needed stent replacements in my main bile duct, because of biliary strictures, but this was resolved 1.5 years ago. I take UDCA (ursofalk) and mesalazine, as well as a large range of vitamins etc. After checking PSC on clinicaltrials.com, I have also been taking high doses of DHA. My liver readings are stable and my colonscopies, ultrasounds and biopsies show the diseases are making very slow progress. I rarely suffer from itching but find that phenergan helps. Fortunately I live in Australia where the the medical treatments are free and the medication inexpensive. Would like to hear suggestions from others. I am a retired academic, write science fiction and study Auslan (signing) for my deaf grandson :)
