Her medical history reveals she was diagnosed with metabolic syndrome four years ago which progressed to Type 2 diabetes three years ago. Mrs. Bailey had previously been obese with a BMI of 30.

However, over the last year she has lost 36 pounds without dieting. She explains she is not hungry because she feels full all the time, so she does not eat. She tells you she is also very tired all the time and she is often too tired to cook and eat. Mrs. Bailey’s physician informed her this morning she has cirrhosis of the liver.
