My portal vein blockage/hypertension happened soon after my spleen was removed, I was told it is a rare occurrence. Lucky me.

I was diagnosed with diabetes 15 years ago. About two years ago, I was diagnosed with portal hypertension and cirrhosis related to fatty liver. I do not drink alcohol. My blood sugar is under good control, with my most recent A1C rating at 6.6. I have lost weight, but I still need to lose about 20% of body weight to fall within the "normal" category.
