Jaundice refers to the yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes. Jaundice is caused when a substance called bilirubin is not removed from the body in a timely manner. Eventually bilirubin builds up in the blood and body tissues causing jaundice.  There are three types of jaundice:


• Pre-hepatic jaundice: Caused by conditions such as sickle cell anaemia and haemolytic anaemia

• intra-hepatic jaundice: Caused by conditions such as Gilbert's syndrome, cirrhosis or other liver damage

• post-hepatic jaundice: Caused by conditions such as gallstones or tumours


Middle-aged people and the elderly are more prone to intra-hepatic and post-hepatic jaundice. Pre-hepatic jaundice can affect the young and old alike.


In order to prevent jaundice, certain lifestyle changes need to be made. These are; abstaining from alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight, and minimizing hepatitis risks by timely vaccinations.


Jaundice is usually treated according to what is causing it. Along with treating the underlying condition, a blood transfusion or surgery may be used as cures for jaundice.


Symptoms of jaundice include:


• Yellowing of the eyes, skin, and the lining of the inside of parts of the body mucus membrane, such as the mouth and nose

• Pale-coloured stools

• Dark-coloured urine


At the onset of any such symptoms, medical attention should be sought immediately.
