When my father died of alcoholic liver disease in 2016, we didn’t even know he was sick in the months before his death. As a former nurse, I felt guilty because I thought I should know the signs, but I didn’t. After my father’s death, I embarked on research and analysis of the condition hoping to help others understand this sneaky condition.
