Hello, Mr. XXXXX
Once again thanks for query to H.C.M. Forum.
Previously I think report was of XXXXXXX XXXXXXX as an old treated case of jaundice.
Nice to see that you are symptom free now.
Any way , now about query no.
1 Yes you can have one egg ( boiled) / day without any problem .
Yellow portion of egg is yolk ( fat) , while white is protein , so safe for you.
2 Boiled egg is safe 100 % ( 10-15 minutes in boiled water).
3 In your case just for precaution after every 2 months till level of folic acid and vitamin B 12 normal .
Get serum bilirubin level after 3 months ( precaution)
4 Noodles are safe as ingredients are refined flour and vitamins .
Flour don't harm liver in any condition.
Alcohol diminishes immunity in liver.
As previously I mentioned that use regularly folic ( iron tablets) acid & vitamin B 12 tablets.
Still there is mild degree deficiency of folic acid in first report as it is 2.3 ng/ml , while normal is more than 5.38 ng/ml . Folic acid tablets will cover this within short period.
R B Cs are approximately normal again body will recover .
About M C V, M C H Red Cell Width Distribution , we have discussed and this will take some time.
However everything is well & good so be tension free.

Hope I have answered your question.
If further any doubt I will help.
Good luck for future .

Hello, XXXXX.
Once again thanks for asking the question.
Yes mecofol plus is same , ingredients are same as we requires( folic acid+ methylcobalamin).
You can use safely.
Test is SERUM BILIRUBIN 1. DIRECT 2. INDIRECT 3. TOTAL.
Normal value is less than 1.0 mg /dl
Direct less than 0.5 mg/dl
Indirect 0.2-0.7 mg/dl.
If they are raised then jaundice is the possible symptoms, we need to investigate further.
