Thanks for using HCM plateform for medical advice.

According to blood reports, it seems that your grandmother is suffering from obstructive jaundice. Normally liver form the bile (juice for food digestion), it flow via tube (bile duct) to intestine and there its mixed with food and help in digestion of food. In obstructive jaundice, there may be blockage anywhere from liver to intestine in bile duct (bile flow tube).

Ultrasonography is helpful to know about obstructive jaundice and it also tells about cause of obstruction. Consult your gastroenterolgist for further investigation to know more about the disease and treatment. Depending upon underlying cause, it can be treated with either Endoscopy or Surgery or by both.

If this remains untreated, then it may progress to complications like high grade fever, liver damage, yellow coloration of whole body, severe itching, loss of desire to eat...

Meanwhile ask her to take plenty of water and high carbohydrate diet.

I wish for speedy recovery of your grand mother.
