Pediatrician 's  Response
u seem to be recovering from the illness. THERE IS NO RESTRICTION AS FAR AS YOUR DIET IS CONCERNED. so please eat as much & what ever u feel like it. as loong as its not food from outside & is home made & hygienely cooked, u are safe.dont bother about your blood report or what ur neighbours say regarding diet.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul's  Response
Dear Shashi
I am Ayurvedic practioner and have cured many patients of jaundice. Regarding dietary advise i convey to my patients is to stop all milk and amilk products and any thing that has fats and oily nature. I advice them to have fresh vegetables and lot of liquid diet specially sugarcane juice if patient is not diabetic. You should not go in with non veg or nuts as all these increase work load for liver which is already not functioning properly.
along with my medicines for jaundice i do prescribe punarnava mandur and arogya vardhini vati which hasten recovery.
