Dear Gambler,

Thanks for contacting Healthcare Magic.

You probably had acute hepatitis which is now recovering. Your bilirubin has come down to 1 mg%, and this normal level of bilirubin. So you really don't need to worry. you have already recovered.

The colour of eyes take little more time than bilirubin to become normal. Don't worry it will also get better. Normally also urine colour may be light yellow, also this may vary according to the amount of water and fluids you are taking.

Best Wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
