Hello and hope you are doing well.

Jaundice is a symptom like fever and is not a disease. The causes of jaundice are Hemolysis-increased destruction of red blood cells. Hepato cellular jaundice- Acute parenchymal liver disease and chronic parenchymal liver disease. Cholestasis – due to –biliary cirrhosis, viral hepatitis and autoimmune hepatitis. Congenital non-hemolytichyperbilirubineamia-Gilbert’s Syndrome and Rotor’s syndrome.

The cause for jaundice needs to determined. This is done with the help of blood tests, ultra sonogram and if need be, biopsy of liver will help to clinch the diagnosis. If you can get back to me with the diagnosis, I will be able to elaborate further.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. The yellow discoloration of the skin in jaundice is due to bile pigments. So, there should be an elevation of Serum bilirubin levels, which is a blood test, for a diagnosis of jaundice. The normal levels are below 1 mg/dL. So, if your blood tests are normal, you are unlikely to have jaundice.
