Dear Nana,

If you had G6PD there is chance of hereditary to your babies also which had high bilirubin levels so your babies had symptoms of jaundice...
please check your babies also for HBsAG and G6pd
For Hbsag Ayurveda has succesful treatment of your symptoms
contact your nearest Ayurveda doctors
