I am suffering from Jaundice & my billurubin level has come down to normal. Can higher hemoglobin level cause serious problems ?

Hi, For past 4 months I am suffering from Jaundice . Now the recent test suggests that my billurubin level has come down to normal. However, from MY BLOOD REPORT, I have found that my Hemoglobin level is 16. Last 3 blood test suggests that my hemoglobin level is 16. From the Internet sources, I found that Higher Hemoglobin level will cause serious problems. Is that true ? If yes, then what are the steps that I need to take to make the Hemoglobin level normal. Also, during my USG abdomen study, the reports pointed that I am having fatty lever. Will it cause any serious problem. I still continue taking LIV52DS tablets. Does LIV52DS tabs help in curing Fatty liver . I don't have smoking or drinking habit. Also, because of Jaundice my weight has reduced from 77 to 64.Also, please suggest me the diet as well. Earlier, I used to follow very strict diet as well. Now gradually I have started taking food with less oil.I have also started taking dry fruits (Walnut, kismis, Dates,Almonds and pista) 2 pcs each daily. Thanks, Sai ranjit

Dear Sairanjit,thanks for posting your query.There is absolutely no reason to worry.Higher hemoglobin level may be due to many conditions and this will not lead to any problem.As far as fatty liver is concerned if you are over weight please reduce your weight,avoid too much of fat in your diet and do regular exercise.Liv 50 ds has got nothing to do with liver fats.You will have to be watchful.bye and take care.

ur hemoglobin level is on normal side. dont worry. as per fattyliver concerned are you overweight or obese?if yes then u have to reduce ur wt. if u are not obese, consult a physician to find out the cause of it.dont negelect it.treatment of fatty liver depends on what is causing it, and generally, treating the underlying cause will reverse the process of steatosis if implemented at early stage.

Hi, My age is 26, on last november I was detected for jaundice . Last 3 months blood tests suggests that Billurubin level has come down to normal and even urine tests suggests that everything has come down to normal. My weight has drastically reduced now. I have lost around 14 kgs in those 5 months. My questions are as follows : 1) Attimes, I am feeling digestion problem and my doctor has advised me to take Diapep tab (Moring and nigt) for 10 days. I am really fearing to have normal foods. Whether intaking of normal foods will recreate Jaundice again? 2) I am very weak now a days attimes I could not do physical activities for that long? What could be the reason for this ? How can I regain my weight back? Your advise will be highly appreciated. Thanks a ton!

hi doctor I am suffering from jaundice. the day i was detected jaundice, my bilirubin and SGOT and SGPT level was higher than normal. Now after 10 days also the values are same. doctor says that earlier values were showing increasing trend of all the above three things and now it is showing decreasing trend. Is it true that in Jaundice trend reverses and is it possible that I might have got the blood test done at same levels of SGOT SGPT and Bilirubin but this time i might be improving...

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
