hello snehal

welcome to healthcare magic

never take risk extraction during jaundice it is an relative contraindication. all drugs, anesthesia given should be metabolised through liver which is at present at bad condition, so it is better not to extract. let the infection subside then carry on with dental procedures..

welcome to healthcaremagic
it is always advisable to get treatment for jaundice first and once the condition is treated go for tooth extraction
deep jaundice are usually associated with clotting factors deficiencies and may cause bleeding disorder during any surgical procedure
if it is emergency adequate steps to be taken to control the problem before any surgical procedure

I have hashimoto s with varying symptoms & new changes...for example elevated Bilirubin levels which my doc feels is Gilberts syndrome & not associated with my Hashimotos. I have very high iron levels & high satruation of iron (69% saturation upon last blood test... My GP doesn t seem extremely concerned, we did an iron study to test for Haemochromatatis which was negative... however I am fatigued more then usual, I do have a slight change to my skin colour & an unexplained itchy rash on my elbows & arms which in recent weeks has subsided, I have had more recent vision issues that have fuzzed out my sight & made me feel rather nauseous & giddy for minutes at a time...I do get headaches regularly & I am feeling like there is more going on then just my hashimotos. I do continue to get all the hashimotos related symptoms, I feel the cold & get pins & needles in my fingers & toes, my memory fails me, my hair continues to fall out, my heart rate & blood pressure has been effected & I get abdominal pain regularly but from time to time I will get lower back pain that resembles that of a kidney infection just not as severe... I am concerned & feel there has to be some form of connection between these things...or am i just going mad?
