Dear Friend.
We would like to know what medications she was given for ILD, which caused liver dysfunction.
At age of 80 yrs, we have to be very cautious in using medicines.
We would like to know what symptoms made her you to get her investigated and what investigations were being done to make her diagnosis.
See at this age we would like to see all investigations before commenting.
Is she on steroids?
If possible upload her Xray Chest film and all investigations.
We would be happy to help her.
