Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
At very high levels of jaundice the bilirubin starts penetrating the brain and causes mental symptoms and can even lead to coma. Whether the disease will reverse back or not depends on the associated complications he is suffering from.The treating doctor can tell you the best.

Dear,thanks for query.What I understand is that your uncle is having hepatitis e and his bilirubin level is 41.This is high but at time its happens that it stays high for long time.Along with diabetes things are tricky.Please take care and keep a close watch in his condition.In most of cases in absence of other problems things become fine in most of the cases.so be hopeful.all the best.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
