Jaundice Disease And Symptoms Of Weakness

A relapse of jaundice can be quite serious so I would strongly advice you to visit your doctor and get some liver function tests done. Your doctor will be able to advise you over the necessary tests, based on your medical history and present symptoms. Since there is no information provided on the presence or absence of any other conditions like anemia or the cause of your jaundice in the past it would be impossible for me to guide you accurately. If you have suffered a hepatitis infection in the past, which caused your previous jaundice episode then it is extremely important that even after your recovery you should continue to monitor liver enzymes. This helps to assess your liver functioning.

Cure Jaundice With Weakness Treatment

Jaundice is not a disease in itself, but is the term used to describe the condition of yellowish discoloration to the eyes and skin. This yellowish jaundice discoloration occurs when there is an excess of pigmentation in the blood. The pigment responsible is known as bilirubin, which is cellular waste from the breakdown of red corpuscles. Normally the liver will process this bilirubin, but in the presence of excesses the liver may not be able to cope or if the liver is damaged. Jaundice may therefore have a variety of causes and the extent and speed of recovery is determined by these factors. Make it a point to present your physician with an accurate and detailed medical history for proper evaluation. In addition, you will also need to do laboratory tests as directed. Your physician will then be able to determine if the cause for your weakness is connected and because of liver damage or independent of it.

  • Till you receive an accurate diagnosis here is a liver friendly diet plan similar to those used for jaundice patients.
  • Firstly make it a point that you only eat and drink home prepared meals and juices, under the most hygienic conditions. Given your state of weakness your immunity may be low, leaving you very susceptible to infection.
  • To minimize stress on the liver eliminate fats from the diet and increase carbohydrates. Fresh fruits and veggies should form the basis of your diet. Dhalia porridge, curd and soft custards are also some easily digestible foods.
  • Juices from vegetables and fruits are also recommended. Sugarcane juice mixed with a little lime juice is particularly beneficial because of the high carb content. Moreover fruit juices will also hydrate and nourish your system.
  • Continue with a vegetable fruit rich diet as this will put the least strain on your system and meet most of your nutritional needs.
  • Make it a point to avoid all fatty foods and alcoholic foods as far as possible.
  • Consult with a nutritionist for a more specialized diet as you may also require supplements in case of a nutritional deficiency or anemia.
