Hi,
Thanks for writing in HCM.
If your eyes are yellow then you should not waste any time at all.
Get the following blood investigations done immediately and consult your doctor immediately.
1. Complete blood count.
2. Complete liver function tests.
3. Renal Profile.
4. PT/INR
5. Ultrasound of the abdomen.
6. Viral markers and antibodies for hepatitis viruses
These investigations will help in arriving at a diagnosis which will aid in commencing specific treatment.
