Answer to your Health Question

Question:


This is a reply of your answer to my previous question

I would like to add to my father's case.............................that well he has not got pain anywhere in the thorax......... rather taking glucose---------------as in case of ordinary jaundice, excessive glucose intake is required, and it is often advised to finish a 400g pack of powdered glucose after adding in water, in about 2-3 days---------but my father was not needing an active dose I presume. As, he had urinary tract irritation after taking almost 1/5th of the pack in about 2 days.

And the irritation was relieved after successive intake of simple water.
Perhaps his blood glucose level had reached above the kidneys threshold level.
But as no urine culture test was performed afterwards...

I just can't say..... Well I'm thinking that..... The homeopathic medicine he took earlier(was supposed to make him active...as the doctor said before he gave it to him) may have brought about a change in his metabolism in a way that neither his liver nor his gall bladder affected, rather there is increased bilirubin and alt in the blood due to some other reason!

As there is no inflammation...it isn't hepatitis I think and, well only that homeopathic doctors knows that what he has given to my father and in the light of that as he is doing some further treatment...

He was advised taking only plums and no other fruit....may be because there is no extra need of glucose...and also he told papa to take a bit of goat meat and its soup type gravy and also bread...he also has asked papa to take a little bit of pulses and even rice too.

Well as you know proteins shouldn't be taken in ordinary jaundice!
And the most important part that my father developed this condition in 2 days....that's pretty sudden.

And also he's all ITCHY...since then........... Also tell that what does high value of specific gravity of the urine sample indicates...as I told you earlier in my previous email..... Please reply in the light of this case and as early as possible....

Answer:

Dear Patient,

Jaundice is not a disease but rather a sign that can occur in many different diseases.

Jaundice occurs when there is too much bilirubin being produced for the liver to remove from the blood.

For example, patients with hemolytic anemia have an abnormally rapid rate of destruction of their red blood cells that releases large amounts of bilirubin into the blood.

Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause pernicious anemia. This type of anemia could happen in people who are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from their intestines due to a number of reasons: strict vegetarians who may not be taking adequate vitamin supplements, or long-term alcoholics.

This typically causes macrocytic (large cell volume) anemia.

Vitamin B12, along with folate, is a involved in making the heme molecule that is an integral part of hemoglobin. Folate deficiency can be the culprit of anemia. This may also be caused by inadequate absorption, under-consumption of green, leafy vegetables, and also long-term heavy alcohol use.
