Jaundice is often referred to as yellow fever as the colour of the skin turns yellow and the patient may have yellowish tinge in the white portion of the eyes. The causes of jaundice are accumulation of bilirubin in the blood and body tissue. That build-up is generally caused due to situations affecting the liver, such as cirrhosis, hepatitis or gallstones. New born babies tend to get jaundice in the hospital however it may affect any individual of any age too. The symptoms of jaundice include fever, stomachache, yellow stools, yellowish eyes and skin, dark urine, fatigue, weight loss and itching. The treatment of jaundice is based on the underlying cause of the condition. The Gastroenterologist will diagnose the symptoms carefully and examine the patient with blood tests and a thorough physical examination. The specialist will then suggest a treatment plan which is best suited for the diagnosed conditions. The various jaundice treatments may include dietary modifications, increase in iron intake, anti viral or steroid medications, etc. Infant jaundice may be treated with light therapy or phototherapy which is provided in the nursery of the hospital. In cases of mild jaundice there may be no treatment required as the liver tends to heal on its own after some days and the symptoms begin to disappear. People addicted to alcohol are more likely to get jaundice as the liver is damaged by alcohol and leads to two diseases in particular, alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis.
