I'll pray for you.  I'd talk to your doctor.  With kidney failure, you can get dialysis.  I knew someone who was type I diabetic many years ago (lost touch with him after I switched jobs), and he had to start dialysis in his early 50s.  He got type I when he was a kid.  I don't know if he had liver issues or not, or what they do for the liver, but dialysis will help cycle your blood out when your kidneys fail.  I  have lupus and diabetes, so I have a double risk of kidney failure, so I am very interested in finding out about possibilities and stuff, or I guess finding out more stuff to worry about.  I think for a failing liver, they try to save whatever part is functioning, and if that doesn't work I think they do liver transplants. It sounds very scary, but you really need to ask your doctor as much as you can, even if you are scared to know.  I will pray for you and your organ health.

Follow this to bring the sugar level under control and improve the liver and kidney function.
These pranayam exercises will help control the diabetes and the side effects.Build up the timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume later.The benefits will be noticed in weeks as the sugar level is checked daily.Over the long tern the diabetes will be in full control and the medicine can be reduced in consultation with the doctor.
