Years of untreated diabetes appear to be the cause of my 64 year old husbands liver failure. Acites was the first clue. Every few months he has esophageal varices banded. He bruises easily. He takes insulin for his diabetes but in the last few months it has been skyrocketing. The doctors reprimand him for not being more careful with his diet. Yet we are being very careful. I wondered if the unfiltered poison in his body could be causing his blood sugar levels to spike into the 300 and 400 levels? I’m so worried.
