SH...evidently your sister is interested in having a long distance relationship as she deals with her health problems. I am hoping she has maintained her sobriety...and think she has to have lived these years.
Both symptoms you mention can have many causes, but with liver disease both are often seen.
Itching was one of my partner'S symptoms for YEARS before his transplant. His liver specialist prescribed cholestyramine and it worked. It is a powder that mixed with water is like tang. y\You can't really advise your sis...but her doc knows this problem with bile salts responds to the powder mix. IF, she went to a doctor.
Odd sleeping is seen in many liver disease patients. Many take meds to help them sleep. They often switch night and day, Sleep all day and lurk about
I'm so sorry miles and worries and many years keep you apart. But I bet the pleasant phone calls are much appreciated.
