I also am being treated by the VA and have co-morbid conditions. Addison's disease is an auto-immune disease which attacks it's own organs. Since the treatment for the liver disease is in itself debilitating to the liver, your liver just can't take the added injury.
The best that I can offer is too take Milk Thistle (silymarin) which is one of the few Chinese herbs that I believe in. You can research it on the Internet.
Try to keep your chin up. You survived a war. Welcome home and stay tough.
