Icterus, which is another name for jaundice, makes your skin and the whites of your eyes turn yellow. Excess bilirubin, a yellow chemical found in haemoglobin, causes the condition. As old red blood cells die, the body makes new ones to take their place. The liver gets rid of the old ones, but bilirubin builds up in the body if the liver can't keep up with the breakdown of blood cells. It can also indicate a serious underlying liver abnormality.
Jaundice is categorized into 3 major types, they include:
A kind of jaundice caused by liver disease is referred to as hepatocellular jaundice. Several factors can lead to this kind of damage.
Hemolytic jaundice occurs when red blood corpuscles break down faster than normal, causing the liver to have trouble working with so much bilirubin.
Obstructive jaundice develops when bile ducts between the liver, gallbladder, and intestine become blocked.
Instead of treating the symptoms of jaundice, jaundice doctors look for the underlying reason. For instance:
Babies need phototherapy. This exposes the baby's skin to blue light. Baby-safe "bili lights" The light stimulates a chemical reaction in the skin that removes bilirubin through urine and feces. Phototherapy for jaundice can be divided into two categories:
The baby is put on a bed with bili lights above it. These lamps give off a unique blue light. During phototherapy, soft eye patches keep the baby's eyes safe.
A "bili blanket" tool is used to do this treatment. It is a soft pad with blue lights inside for phototherapy. Consult your specialist for infant jaundice treatment in case your child is dealing with the condition.
My newborn had suddenly developed jaundice, and we reached out to Sri Ramakrishna Hospital as it is in our neighborhood. We had a lot of doubts before visiting the hospital, but as soon as we visited the hospital, our doctor immediately examined his condition and quickly suggested treatment. Within a few weeks, his condition improved. Thank you, Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, for helping my son recover.
