What is the treatment for jaundice?

Hello. My sister is suffering from Jaundice. She is 21 years old. Her bilirubin content was 1.9 a few weeks ago and on testing her blood now, the report says that her bilirubin is 2.9. We don't give her many things to eat that includes oil, spice, and junk food or non vegetarian food. The only thing we have given her to eat is boiled rice, chapati, banana, tomato and a few things that doctors have prescribed. I want a better food menu so that she recovers sooner. Its been a month since she has been suffering from this disease. Waiting for your reply. Thank you.

Treatment of Jaundice mainly depends on underlying diseases. Consult your sonologist for ultrasonography (USG) of whole abdomen which will help in identifying any blockages or injury or other other operative reason.

High bilirubin may be due to liver infections like hepatitis, malaria or may be due to genetic reasons or may be due to alcoholic liver damage.

If hepatitis, malaria or thalassemia, first try to treat them because there is no specific medicine or vaccine for Jaundice. If surgery needed do it. If alcoholic, reduce or stop it. If severe anemea, advised for blood transfusion.

You are giving the diet is proper but i am adding something. You can give different fruit juices like pinepple, orange, apple or grapes.
You can also give in between coconut water. In lunch, you can give veg salad, buttermilk and green veg subji too.
in dinner you can give wheat based diet, veg soup or subji, baked and mashed potato.

Before sleep take milk without fat with little honey.
Hope these will be helpful.
Thank you for trusting us..
