Re: Symptoms of dying from liver shutdown

honestly, in most cases, when things are just at that stage the person would more than likely already be in some level of coma like state. usually from too high ammonia that severely impacts the brain. ammonia levels are not really controllable after a certain stage of liver disease. without a transplant the person would eventually succumb. other organs would also just start to shut down as well.

are you needing this info for a person you know who has end stage liver disease or are you thinking you have it? marcia
