Jaundice definition

Jaundice is a yellowish discoloration of the skin, mucous membranes and of the white of the eyes caused by elevated levels of bilirubin in the blood (hyperbilirubinemia). The term jaundice is derived from the French word jaune, which means yellow. Jaundice is not a disease per se, but rather a visible sign of an underlying disease process. Jaundice is typically seen when the level of bilirubin in the blood exceeds 2.5-3 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter).

I have jaundice too! I am struggling with it since December, so that's five months. It was really bad! My face was all orange. I am 70 percent on raw foods, it's getting better and yes, I do believe in treating it naturally.

Comment from: rajsharma, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: October 21

In the beginning I noticed that I have lost almost 6 kg weight in less than 20 days without such efforts. I did not take it seriously and in the next 10 more days my weight reduced by 10 kg more. From 82 kg to 66 kg now. I was suggested to go for blood test by the doctor. It was found to be jaundice. Direct/conjugated bilirubin was 1.0 mg/dL and total bilirubin was 2.3 mg/dL. Now I am on medication. I am asked to avoid heavy meals, fried and spicy meals. I was asked to drink lot of water, sugarcane and other fruit juices.
