Suffering from Jaundice

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!

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Normally after jaundice weakness and digestive issues are common. Please continue medicines as suggested by your doctor. You can even take vitamin B complex tablet or syrup, this will help in faster recovery as well as improve your appetite. Drink plenty of fluids, take fruits, and light diet at frequent interval. You will become absolutely normal in few weeks.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pragnesh Vachharajani
