Can you have a liver transplant if you have diabetes and are over 65?
Yes, you definitely can.

People who have liver failure and need transplants are often times extremely sick and can have the surgery.

being over 65 and having diabetes will definitely not preclude you from getting a transplant.

I think this is a very feasible option for you.

I'm not sure what other detail you might want. If you have further questions, just ask.
