What is Jaundice?
“Jaundice” refers to yellowing of the skin and eyes. Jaundice itself is not a disease, but it is a sign of several possible underlying illnesses. Jaundice occurs when there is too much bilirubin in system. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment that is formed by the breakdown of dead red blood cells present in the liver. Mostly, the liver gets rid of bilirubin along with old red blood cells.
Jaundice is a serious problem with the function of red blood cells, liver, gallbladder, or pancreas.
What are Causative Factors for Jaundice?
Old red blood cells transfer to liver, where they’re broken down. Bilirubin is the yellow pigment formed by the breakdown of these old red blood cells. Jaundice occurs to people when your liver doesn’t metabolize bilirubin the way it’s supposed to.
Your liver might be damaged and not able to perform this process. Sometimes the bilirubin simply can’t make it to digestive tract, where it normally would be removed through stool. In some cases, there may be too much bilirubin trying to enter the liver at once or too many red blood cells dying at one time.
