    I don’t drink or smoke. I thought my health was good except for slightly overweight and diabetic. The VA kept me on Metformin and insulin more than 20 years. Blood tests and bloody urine showed that I had a kidney infection and kidney stone. A civilian hospital CTscan revealed NASH (cirrhosis and fatty liver) and kidney stone. Endoscopy revealed esophageal varices. The doctor banded the esophagus. A few weeks later, I had a near fatal episode of septic shock. I am researching what had happened to me and why the VA doctors did not help me. 27 years US Navy and Vietnam Veteran.
