You tell us that your driver has had yellow discoloration
of the white of the eye for over two years. You also tell
us that all his liver
tests came back normal.
is mostly associated with various liver
diseases such as hepatitis
,gallstones and other
conditions that damage the liver.
If his urine is not dark orange and the palm of his hands
are not yellow , it is unlikely that he has jaundice.
There is a condition called Carotonemia which is seen
in vegetarians and also who eat more orange colored
vegetables such as carrots. This can cause yellow discoloration
of palms,soles of the feet and other areas including the white of
the eye. In some people a small area of the white contains yellow
spot and this may be from an old infection. Sometimes, this
condition runs in the family. Find out if any of his family members
have the same thing.
So long as all the liver tests are normal, the condition is not life
threatening and tell him not to worry. Make sure he takes a good
multi-vitamin containing Vit-A and Vit-D (Adequate amounts).
I wish him well.
