jaundice can be due to an obstructive or hemolytic. Specific biological/blood exams and morphologoc exams (ultrasound) with the aid of a good clinical Acute onset jaundice and chronic, repeated episode and a one time episode are evaluated differently. Associated symptoms like fever, weight loss, past history of alcohol abuse and some drugs and toxins are important risk factors in the evaluation. It is always important to carry out blood tests for Viral hepatitis viruses B and C which are important causes of jaundice. Liver enzymes are however important for monitoring and giving an orientation to cause. You shall also need an ultrasound and other blood tests.
The ideal situation would be for you to consult a gastroenterologist to help in making a definitive diagnoses, to orient specific treatments. Avoiding of toxins to the liver while waiting like not taking drugs without due prescription from a physician (paracetamol), reduce of stopping alcohol intake and avoiding traditional concoctions with unidentified constituents).
I suggest you meet a gasroenterologist/internist.
Hope this be of help,
Luchuo, MD.
