I have a 54 yr old mentally retarded sister with type 2 diabieties she has been seeing Dr. after Dr. at first they thought it was leukemia but everything there was negative. All her boold counts are very low. Recently we were told she has advanced stages of cirrhosis. The hemotoligist told us all he could do would be to monitor her blood levels until the end of her days. He did tell us anything else as far as what to look for or watch for only to get her to a hospital asap if she beings to hemogiage. The gastro Dr. did an endoscopy and a colonostopy and said that she has varies and hope to see us in a year. Her diabities is getting hard to manage her glucose level are runnung very high (250-400) she is seeing a Dr. for that right now too. We just don't know what to expect no one is telling us how the diesese is going to progress. She in on no med for the cirrhosis and she is not a canidate for a transplant. Any advise anyone has would be a great help.
