Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr. XXXXXXX thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is called as cholestasis of pregnancy and is seen in around 1-4 % of pregnancies and is more common in twin pregnancy.
She needs to take care of the following points -
- avoid heavy meals and try to take small amounts at frequent intervals.
- daily fetal movement count
- visit your gynecologist every 2 weeks and ultrasound every three weeks
- injection vitamin K every 4 weeks
- increase intake of fruits and salads
- repeat liver function tests after 15 days
In case you have other questions you can contact me directly on health care magic.
All the best.
