is not always caused by liver
dysfunction. Certain disorder that cause destruction of red blood cells (Known as hemolytic syndromes) also cause jaundice. The simplest way to determine this is if the indirect bilirubin
fraction is more than direct fraction- hemolytic syndrome is likely. Please send me the following details
1. complete blood counts- hemoglobin
, total count, platlets etc
2. Utrasound of abdomen
3. complete liver function test- bilirubin- direct/ Indirect fraction, ALT, AST and ALP.
