Hi and welcome to HCM.
i am sorry about this serious diagnosis but I see you are a fighter and this is a good sign. In these cases blood sugar isnt something that determinate your life expectancy. Also it can be pretty easily managed by certain medicines. Only important findings are liver function tests and liver morphology. So you will be fine till your liver works good enough and it means that there should be more than 20% of normal liver tissue. It is obvious that all you need is palliative care and sometimes GP can be more helpful than any insurance or institution. You just need to use adequate painkillers, prevent ascites accumulation and prevent weight loss. Everything else isnt in your hands.
