Hi pal,

Welcome to healthcare magic!
Your liver function test does support the diagnosis of jaundice although you have not told the SGOT/SGPT Report-if they are also normal then probably you don't have hepatitis also. But if if the liver enzymes are raised then your doctor is right that is the initial phase of jaundice.
Your fever and jaundice(if it is there really) are symptoms of the disease and not the disease itself.
You may be having hepatotropic viral infection, malaria, cholangitis, enteric fever as a cause behind the syndrome.
You need a physical examination by your physician and get base line investigations like
Chest X Ray, Electrocardiogram, Complete Blood Counts, Renal Function Test,
Repeat Liver Function Test, Ultrasound Abdomen, Urine Compete Examination.
This work up is expected to detect the underlying problem so a definite treatment could be started.
I hope this advise would be helpful for you.
Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!

Thanks for choosing HCM.
Your report points to early liver dysfunction which leads to Jaundice.
However there are other causes, like some medicines being taken, herbal products being consumed etc which can cause this.
Get in touch with your doctor & follow the advice. Avoid fatty foods[fried, oily foods]
