From the history given, it seems that you want to know the symptoms of end stage liver disease.
End stage liver disease ultimately results in liver failure and hepatic encephalopathy.
The symptoms might begin slowly and gradually worsen, or they may begin suddenly and be severe from the start.
Family members or caregivers may notice that the patient has:
Breath with a musty or sweet odor
Change in sleep patterns
Changes in thinking
Confusion that is mild
Personality or mood changes
Worsening of handwriting or loss of other small hand movements
MORE SEVERE SYMPTOMS INCLUDE : -
Abnormal movements or shaking of hands or arms
Agitation, excitement, or seizures (occur rarely)
Drowsiness or confusion
Inappropriate behavior or severe personality changes
Slowed or sluggish movement
Ultimately patients become unconscious, unresponsive, and enter a coma resulting in death, if the treatment is unsuccessful.
