What is jaundice?

Jaundice is not a disease, but rather a sign that can occur in many different diseases. Jaundice is the yellowish staining of the skin and sclerae (the whites of the eyes) that is caused by high levels in blood of a chemical bilirubin. The color of the skin and the whites of the eyes vary depending on the level of bilirubin. When the bilirubin level is mildly elevated, they are yellowish. When the bilirubin level is high, they tend to be brown.

Comment from: Jaesha, 19-24 Female (Caregiver) Published: March 25

I'm 24. I had been to my sister's place, and when I came back, I noticed loss of appetite, contraction in stomach, itching and yellow eyes. After blood report, I got to know that I'm having jaundice. Doctors told me to get admitted and have drips but I went for Ayurvedic medicine and within a week I noticed tremendous improvement. I had a no oil diet and a full sugar diet.
