Hi.
Thanks for posting query at HCM.
It may take few weeks for the jaundice to come down provided your "not" suffering from fatty liver disease or HBV; HCV.

Though you mentioned jaundice but did not mention liver enzyme values.

Usually ALT or AST values higher than "two times the upper normal limit", is considered abnormal ( in some countries, ALT or AST values of more than 100 are considered abnormal).

Value of AST or ALT greater than 85 or above maybe investigated further.
HAV, HBV, HCV, Alcohol ingestion and obesity are common causes of liver disease.

advice :
- abstinence from "Alcohol"
- LOW fat diet should be followed, AVOID junk food and beverages
- decreased oil consumption (oily food)
- NO red meat
- green vegetables should be ingested daily
- use lemon juice (lemonade) once in a day
- reduce weight if overweight/obese

-"recheck liver enzymes after 6 to 8 weeks"

any further questions are welcomed.

hope to answer your concern.

wish you good health.

regards,
Dr Tayyab Malik
