Mostly the insult seems to be in the liver or the outflow of liver secretions

I will recommend that you get more tests done to find the cause

The tests can include hepatitis virus serology

these were 64 tests
You can send it at YYYY@YYYY

have recieved report...just sent
It usually takes some time
i have also enlarged liver sometime back
is this curable ?
We need to find a cause
It depends on the cause
You need to get checked for hepatitis virus serology
starting with hepatitis B
what are the symptoms for these diseases ?
The most common symptom is fatigue
Yellow eyes, skin , urine, stools
yes ..it is there
eyes and skin are good
Itching of skin due to raised bilirubin
Pain in abdomen may be there
Mostly we need to take precautions so that bilirubin does not build up in body
The precautions can include drinking more water
i never felt pain in abdomen ..or it got unnoticed
Take care to drink pure water
Take hygienic diet
so got my report ?
Heavy files take time
it is only 456kb
Its reached the customer care team
They are forwarding it to me
are there any foods which can improve bilrubin levels ?
ok got the reports
Give me a min to review
I think you forgot to attach reports
Can you check in your email?
no it is there
can you check with your customer care team
may be they forgot
I will check
Can you check in the sent items if you attached the reports
Since they send the email as such
Ok now got it
give me a min
Mostly the reports are ok
The only worrisome findings are the ones you mentioned
It usually goes down in a month if proper precautions are taken after finding a cause
How long do you have the symptoms?
from last 3 years
i got this checked up in 2011
Do you have any idea about the cause?
no idea ?
Did you take any medicines before the start of the episode?
i am not sure if that was the cause
also i have very low appitite...
It is possible
i do not feel hungary at all
I also want to recheck for typhoid and malaria
These things have not been checked in your current report
Malaria can definitely cause jaundice
so what all test do you suggest ?
Typhoid can cause jaundice in 1- 8 %
i will get them done ..
For malaria you may go for a repeat peripheral smear
and typhoid ?
Serial testing of typhoid would be better
any more tests for liver ?
I want you to consult an XXXXXXX medicine specialist and take the tests under his supervision
Yes more tests like serology for hepatitis viruses
These are the minimum
I also want you to take precautions in your diet
what all precautions i need to have ?
As both typhoid and hepatitis can be caused by drinking contaminated water
Drink pure water
Some of the hepatitis viruses can be sexually transmitted
i have aquaguard installed from last 5 years
Do not drink mineral water outside
no...in my area ..ph is not so high...so it is uv purifier
You should also take liver 52 syrup
for how many days i need to take liv-52 ?
UV does not take out viruses
Till you get better
i will getthese tests done and get back to you..
thanks for your help
Thanks for consulting
bye for now
