Disease prevention and treatment

Checkout the safety prevention and treatment of jaundice

In adults, jaundice itself usually isn't treated. But your doctor will treat the condition that's causing it. If you have acute viral hepatitis, jaundice will go away on its own as the liver begins to heal. If a blocked bile duct is to blame, your doctor may suggest surgery to open it.

In breastfed babies, it is common for jaundice to last 1 month or occasionally longer. In formula-fed babies, most jaundice goes away by 2 weeks. However, if your baby is jaundiced for more than 3 weeks, see your baby's doctor.

Add all these above mentioned foods in your diet and avoid any kind of alcohol or complex foods such as heavy cream milk or red meat. During jaundice it is advised to eat in small portions but to eat frequently. Drink a lot of water and take a lot of rest for a quick recovery.

Treatment

Anemia-induced jaundice may be treated by boosting the amount of iron in the blood by either taking iron supplements or eating more iron-rich foods.

Hepatitis-induced jaundice requires antiviral or steroid medications.

Doctors can treat obstruction-induced jaundice by surgically removing the obstruction.
