Only your doctor can answer these as im just giving you my thoughts on it. That being said ....do you have Juandice (yellow eyeballs and/or skin) have you drank alchohol thru out your life? If no to these things then probably not Cirrhosis...Again Diabetes as you stated you have is a major cause of this. Also hard to give a better answer without knowing your Iron levels and im surprised they would check Ferritin and not Iron.....
