Jaundice is the result of an underlying disorder that causes the overproduction of bilirubin and prevents the liver from disposing it. This results in the bilirubin getting deposited in the tissues. Jaundice should not be confused with infant jaundice. Inflammation of the liver or the bile duct, obstruction of the bile duct, haemolytic anaemia and gilbert's syndrome are some of the causes for jaundice. The symptoms for jaundice treatment are usually fatigue, yellow tinge to the skin or on the whites of the eyes, abdominal pain, weight loss, vomiting, fever, and dark urine. There are types of jaundice. The hepatocellular jaundice occurs as a result of liver disease. Hemolytic jaundice is due to an increase in production of bilirubin and obstructive jaundice is caused as a result of obstruction in the bile duct, which prevents the bilirubin from exiting the liver. Treatment of jaundice is given by diagnosing the specific cause. Anaemia induced jaundice is treated by increasing the amount of iron in the blood and increasing iron supplements. Hepatitis induced jaundice will be treated with steroid or anti-viral medications by the gasteroenterologist. Obstructive jaundice is treated with surgery. The diagnosis of jaundice is based on bilirubin tests, full blood count and Hepatitis A, B and C. If obstructive jaundice is suspected, MRI scan is taken to create images of soft tissues. Ultra sound of the abdomen is also done. A liver biopsy may also be done to check for inflammation, cirrhosis of the liver, cancer and fatty liver depending on the condition of the patient.
