I am from India. I had a blood test yesterday in the evening, and the Doc came up telling that i have Jaundice and Typhoid to gether.

I came to know that i might have jaundice as i saw my eyes and urine were yellow. I was surprised to hear that im suffering from typhoid too.

These are the Symptoms i have.

1. severe Itching all over the body
2. Yellow Eyes
3. Yellow Urine
4. Tired most of the times
5. Fever

I dont have pain though anywhere.

For these sysmptoms, i have seen in several websites that i might be having "Obstructive Jaundice".

This is my Bood test report.

Total Bilirubin - 3.0 mg/dl
Direct Bilirubin - 1.8 mg/dl
Indirect Bilirubin - 1.2 mg/dl

Please advise on my diet and what i could do to recover quickly.

  • Well, I had to drink a lot of water and mostly liquid food, so that the concentrates in the liver was diluted. This was the only thing and I avoided all spicy foods. If you are suffering from Typhoid, You might want to take other medicines prescribed, but for Jaundice, more water water and only more water can reduce its levelPS make sure you drink only boiled water. Lots of juices, glucose should add to more strength. That should do. You will feel the change in atleast 2 weeks.... I hope you recover soon....
