“I take 380 units of insulin, which is approximately nine or 10 shots a day. My doctor told me that he’s never seen anyone take the amount of insulin that I take every day,” Carl says. “I have been in renal failure a couple of times because of my kidneys.”
Carl’s daughter, Hilary, and sister, Teri, however, claim that Carl is a liar and a con artist and that he is not sick but suffers from Munchausen syndrome.
