Patient Comments: Jaundice - Effective Treatments

What kinds of treatments have been effective for your jaundice?

Comment from: MJ, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: March 01

I became jaundiced as a result of taking an herb called Kratom. I am in my third month of recovery and it has been hell. My bilirubin levels peaked at 10 about 1.5 months ago. I got the Kratom at a Kava Bar. (Kava can also cause liver issues) I hope I can help someone out with this post.

I've been suffering from jaundice since I was 6 months old, I have yellowish eyes and skin...I've gone to different laboratories but still my yellowish eyes weren't curable.

I had suffered from jaundice for the second time. First when the age of 7 years and 2nd on the age of 18 years. I had controlled my daily routine strictly like in the period of jaundice. I am not used to that type of food that contains only a drop of oil and spices. I refer papaya and juice after each short interval.

I have been suffering from jaundice for seven years. I have visited doctors, and they advise me to control my diet and avoid drinking. They also told me to get lots of bed rest.
