Causes and treatment of jaundice in adults - Health-Teachers

Jaundice in adults, also known as jaundice or jaundice, is a disease in which the skin and the whites of the eyes turn yellow. Usually, the disease is found in children, but a person can suffer from it at any age.

It is important to contact the doctor immediately when the symptoms of jaundice appear. Jaundice in adults can be a sign of liver, bleeding problems.

Causes of Jaundice

Jaundice occurs when the amount of cat rubin increases. Cat rubin is a yellow to orange blood substance found in red blood cells. When these cells die, the liver filters them out of the blood. But if there is a problem in this system, the liver does not work properly and cat rubins start to form in large numbers, which makes the skin appear yellow.

Jaundice is not as common in adults as it is in children, but it can occur for a number of reasons. Some of which are detailed below.
Hepatitis: Most infections are caused by a virus. It can be short-lived or permanent. Which means it can last up to six months.

Certain medications and immune system disorders can cause hepatitis. Over time, hepatitis can cause jaundice by first damaging the liver.

Bile duct obstruction: These are narrow ducts in which a fluid called bile flows. These ducts carry bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. Sometimes they die due to gallstones, cancer and liver disease. If so, it can cause jaundice.

Pancreatic cancer: It is the tenth most common cancer in men and the ninth most common in women. It can also damage the bile duct, which can cause jaundice.

Use of certain drugs: Penicillin, birth control drugs and steroid use are associated with liver diseases.

Symptoms of Jaundice: Redness of the skin and the whites of the eyes. itching Nausea or vomiting. Weight hour. fever Darkening of urine.

Diagnosis of Jaundice: Doctors usually perform a cat-rubin cat test when symptoms of jaundice appear, which shows how much of this substance is present in the blood. If the patient has jaundice, the amount of cat rubin in the blood will be high.

After finding out about the symptoms, the doctor can also prescribe check-ups and other tests to find out about the liver. To find out the reason, CBC is also done in which the blood cells are counted.

Treatment of Jaundice: To treat it, it is important to know its cause and treat it. If hepatitis has caused the jaundice, the jaundice will go away on its own as the disease goes away and the liver starts to heal.
