3 Months before I was affected by jaundice. (Total bilirubin:2.3mg/dL direct 1.2mg/dL). As per a doctors advice, i am taking only Oil-less,Salt-less,mostly fat-less foods. I took only 7 days rest as i want to step into my first job(at starting state of jaundice). After that no bed rest, nearly 8hours/day i was sitting in-front of systems. Bilirubin level is going up and down for last 1 month. Now Bilirubin level is about 1.4mg/dL-Total(0.6mg/dL-Direct). In my testing report, it was mentioned that 1.1mg/dL -Total and 0.5mg/dL-Direct as normal. Is it true that it will take about 4.1/2 months to come to normal?. As medicine I am taking only LIV52 syrup only. How long it will take for bilirubin to come to normal? Now there is no disturbance in my body. I want to know whether i am in normal recovery or any problem with my bilirubin levels. My last 3 reports:
Total(mg/dL) Direct(mg/dL)
15-Oct 1.4 0.6
25-Sept 1.7 0.6
11-sept 1.9 0.5
24-Aug 2.0 0.7
As per Lab: <1.1mg/dL<0.5mg/dL as Normal
Suggest some foods that i can take without any problem.
