My husband had a liver disease and did not drink, or take drugs. He had swollen glands and very dry eyes, which I kept mentioning this to all (6) doctors, with no interest. He was on the liver transplant list back and forth unactive to active, back to unactive, for years. When he turned 70, they claim his heart was too weak to survive a transplant. Come to find out he had Sjorgen Disease, which has many variables as far as disease, including cirhosis. And, its an auto-immune disease that was missed by all the doctors he saw at the transplant center. He liver and kidneys finally gave out and he died, but His HEART NEVER FAILED. IN FACT THAT IS THE ONLY THING THAT SURVIVED. HERE IS THE FACTS ABOUT THIS DISEASE THAT IS OVER-LOOKED BY MANY UNTRAINED DOCTORS; HOPE IT SAVES SOME LIFE OUT THERE!! ITS AN EXOCRINE GLANDULAR DISEASE AND HAS NO CURE, BUT CAN BE MANAGED IF CAUGHT EARLY. IT USUALLY STARTS AROUND MIDDLE AGE, 40. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT THIS DISEASE, NOT ALL CIRHOSSIS IS ALL ABOUT DRINKING OR DRUGS!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exocrine_gland

This is a good doctor that believes in consistent treatment, vitamin intervention and follow up care. He was quick to recommend zinc sulfate, magnesium oxide, vitamin E and other supplements, that most doctors will not. He gave my husband hope and followed up on his labs to give us the heads up when issues arose. Enough we did not get a liver transplant, my husband quality of life was improved thanks to Dr. E. Wakil!!http://www.bcm.edu/biochem/?PMID=3794So interesting research on CQ-10 for fatty acids reduction.
