Hello...

Diet plan for jaundice should include good amount of calories deriving mainly from Carbohydrates( cereals) and fruits and of course some amount of Proteins as well.
Fruits like Banana, Apple, Pears, Musumbi, Orange etc are a good source of potassium If your aunt cannot eat a whole fruits you can give them as juices. Sugar cane juice is very good Liver tonic. Also veg juices like Carrot/ beetroot juices will be of good help in healing.
Cereals could be given in the form of Kanji... Rava porridge, Ragi malt,Rice porridge and soya porridge will provide good calories hence strength to her..

2 months back, I was diagnosed with having a mild case of jaundice. The way I understand it, jaundice is merely a symptom and not a disease which is caused by any one form of hepatitis. Recently I had underwent another liver function test, the results of which are given below. Serum bilirubin total:1.13mg/dl Direct:0.51mg/dl SGOT:33U/L SGPT:54U/L Alkaline Phosphatase:92IU/L Total Proteins:7.7gm/dl Albumin:4.0gm/dl Globulin:3.7gm/dl My queries are as follows: 1. Is there any trouble with my liver? 2. Am I suffering from any form of Hepatitis? 3. I am 31 yrs of age and have been a chronic smoker for the past 10 yrs. Is my smoking responsible for the high value of SGPT ? 4. Is my SGPT value too high and should I be alarmed about it? 3

Respected Doctor,
I am Mahek Patel, 15 years old, 163 cm tall and weigh 64kg. I was admitted in hospital on 2nd September for Typhoid and discharged on 8th September. I am given particular medicines for the same. Doctor told to intake a liquid diet only. I still have pain in my tummy. But i feel low in energy and hungry the whole day because my mother is very impatient, tension taking, very much unnecessary worrying and so very strict and particular about liquid intake. So i am only given Rice Water, Juices and Ice Cream because mother is confused what else to give. So what particular diet shoud i follow which makes me feel healthy and full of energy?

I have used Metamucil to prevent diverticulitis attacks, but I stopped for two weeks. That was a mistake I had a severe diverticulitis attack two days ago and I am on a clear liquid diet. My question is when do I begin taking Metamucil? Should I take it now or wait until I am back on solid foods?

doctor1 MD

I am worried about the clear liquid diet being only one day before the colonoscopy. I want to eat foods that will make the process easier for 3 days before. Obviously I should have a big steak, but do you know where I can find a sample menu that would be beneficial for the 2-3 days before the liquid day?
