Pediatrician 's  Response
hi ,
LFT is suggestive of neonatal Jaundice.U have not mentioned the weight of this baby.if this a term baby with weight more than 3 kg then this Juandice is physiological which will start disappearing in few days and by 15 days it will clear off. however if the weight is really low then it's better for a pediatrician to assess him becoz it might be exaggerated physiological Juandice which might require phototherapy .

take care.
