It all depends on why you developed jaundice
. If it was due to alcohol, you should definitely avoid it completely for the rest of your life.
If the jaundice was due to something acute and unrelated such as Hepatitis A
, or a medication induced liver injury
, then I would wait until your liver is completely recovered for at least 6 months to a year (with completely normal liver enzymes). Consult with a gastroenterologist or hepatologist beforehand.
No supplement is proven to help protect the liver. Milk thistle
is popular, but the research studies show no benefit (unless given intravenous and in very high doses). Also milk thistle is not an FDA regulated supplement, so the efficacy, if any, varies depending on the brand.
