Autoimmune hepatitis is usually treated with steriods.  I am not sure
anybody can really say for sure how you got it.  I suppose your body'
immune system could have could have become *senstitized* to your liver
during your HAV infection.  Try search for hepatitis and find
your way to sights that are specific to your needs if no one here can
answer your questions.
