Detailed Answer:
Hi Rajnibhola
Thanks for the details .

* This indicates benign nature of peri pancreatic nodes following infection
of liver through virus . ( in absence of specific narration , I assume that this
Bilirubin is total 4.3 ; how much is direct and how much indirect ? )

* Recommendations for better recovery .

- Drink plenty of liquids preferable boiled water , green tea , coffee without any
sugar , butter milk .
- Soft , light diet , organic citrus fruits with least sugar at intervals .
- Avoid oily , spicy , excess caloric items , non veg , beverages .

- Keep strict control of diabetes ( which is higher at this point )
- Continue medicines as per your doctor`s advise .

- In our clinic we recommend Ursodeoxycholic acid , Ayurvedic liver tonics ,
Multi vitamins , Proton pump inhibitors to fasten the recovery from jaundice .
- Lactulose in case of constipation .

- Regular weekly monitoring of serum Bilirubin level .
- Remain ambulatory with walking, exercises , YOGA .

Hope this will help you .
Welcome for any further questions .

Wishing you fine recovery from the same .
Regards dear take care .

but sir lactulose is not sugar free. my mom can take it?
Answered by Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel 4 hours later
Brief Answer:
Lactulose is a non-absorbable sugar.

Detailed Answer:
Respected Rajnibhola
Welcome .

Lactulose is a complex sugar polymer that does not get absorbed even though tastes very sweet.

* In our clinic , I recommend low doses with strict control of blood
sugar and other dietary measures for Lactulose use but still there is another
option of Psyllium husk .

* Psyllium husk will benefit from bulk formation , also lower cholesterol and
regulate blood sugar levels in diabetes patients .

* To be consumed 2 teaspoonful with a glass of lukewarm water at night .

Best wishes for her fine health .
