Hi, My daughter is of 6 weeks old. she was observed jaundice at birth with bilirubin level11.0(total) 0.9(direct) and doctor said no medication needed. after 4 weeks we met another doctor he again tested blood now the bilirubin levle Total 8.7 and direct is 5.2 he said nothing to worry but use the medicine it will be cured with in 15 days slowly. after using mediceine for 3 days we went to another doctor and he had a blood test again and now the bilirubin levels are total 9.7 and direct 0.9 he suggested photo therapy and to avoid human feed. but the kid is not drinking the milk formula after three days of Photo therapy we tested blood again and now the bulirubin levels are at total 7.8 and direct 5.2 We stopped the photo therapy and continue to human feed. Plz suggest me how serious it is and how to get out of this. Thanks Joy Martin
Hi,Joy first of all congratulation on birth of baby girl.I know you are stressed at this point with obvious reason.Please do not worry.Normally in most of infants jaundice occurs on 3rd of birth and it last up to one week.This is normal and physiological.In some cases because of some reason,say infection or Rh incompatibility this jaundice increases and last for more days.In such case doctor advise photo therapy.Please keep a one doctor and follow him,your child should be fine.

I m 26 years old male from Chennai, I suffered from Jaundice/Malaria in the month of April. I got cured in about 2 weeks time and also had 2 doses of Hepatitis B vaccination, the 3rd dose is in the month of October. However, I had severe fever couple of week back (ie) 31st of May and doc confirmed that Bile Salt is still present in the Urine and my Bilirubin was 4.8, so I took tablets for 4 days and I m normal now. Currently I m experiencing dark stools whilst excrete this is there for atleast a month now and the other problem is I m getting loose motion when I excrete for the second time, this is happening almost everyday (NOT THE FIRST TIME WHEN I EXCRETE IN THE MORNING). Can you please clarify if the black stools are normal or it symptoms that I m still having Jaundice in my blood? Also please clarify about loose motion that is occurring only on the 2nd time I excrete. Looking forward for your response. --

my son is constantly complaining of constant throat pain in his lower throat, also severe stomach pain and constant head congestion. He is also very tired all the time. He has had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy in the last few weeks. Both were normal. A couple months ago his bilirubin count was high. His doctors are seaming to give up. could you give any light on the subject.
I am a 42 year old female with no major health problems, but have not been feeling well over the last few years (since having kids). I recently had blood work done because I have been fatigued and achy and short of breath. It showed my bilirubin was slightly elevated and a positive ANA (they mentioned a slightly high RNP or something like that). A couple of years ago, by CRP levels showed up as elevated. What could this point to?
