Hello,
Welcome to health care magic,

Considering your billirubin value (especially high conjugated billirubin) you are suffering from hepatocelluar jaundice which needs to be treated.

You will require antibiotic to prevent super infection with symptomatic treatment like Udilive 300 mg for liver enzyme supplements and some dietary restrictions.

For diet,you should follow these guidelines,

Avoid fatty fried and junk food
Have lots of fresh fruits, fruit juices and vegetables.
You should take glucose water 3 to 4 times a day.
Avoid oily,fatty or even high protein intake.

You should have whole grain food items chapati and Daliya or Khichadi.

Do you feel weakness?or How's your appetite?

You should check your blood counts and liver function tests almost daily in initial phases.

Consult your doctor or family physician for complete treatment.

Regards,
