As many of you, I too have a loved one suffering from this deadly disease. We are all looking for answers in order to better understand and help the ones we love. It's a constant battle of the unknown. Many have repeatedly specified the different types of medications used to treat the disease but I didn't see any comments regarding the horrific leg & stomach cramping involved. One 12 ounce glass of Tonic Water a day will help eliminate the cramping altogether. Believe me when I say it does work. The Quinine in the water is the key. I understand it can be purchased in pill form with a script from your physician but you can get all you need from the tonic water and it can be easily purchased at your local grocery store in the bottled water section. After a hospital stay and working closely with Liver & Kidney Specialists I've learned so much already but everyday I like you still search for answers.
