Thank you for sharing this information. My younger brother Joey, is a fraternal twin and was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was in his mid-fourties.He was very introverted but via the internet, he developed many relationships.He was highly intelligent and had a huge heart.His twin brother, Edmund, is the same in his drive to always learn and meet new people. Ed is extroverted, also having a huge heart, is physically fit and healthy.
Joey passed away October 2019 of liver failure.We don’t know how this happened.He lived in an assisted living facility and had medical care administered daily.He was admitted on a Friday, first time to be diagnosed with liver failure and in three days passed away.The medical staff was unaware of any signs of liver disease during the eight years they cared for him.He lived a clean life with only an occasional cigar or specialty beer at family gatherings.
I have asked and told by a few physicians that the liver disease may have been caused by the medications for his schizophrenia.I have also been told some anxiety and antidepressants should be monitored for liver and kidney disease.
I now have all my bloodwork check for any changes in kidney and liver function. Please check with your doctor if your medications can cause damage to your kidneys and liver disease and ask for the bloodwork to be done.
