Jaundice due to enlargement of liver. When this happens the liver is afflicted and infected and as a result the liver swells. In such a state the liver cannot use the bilirubin properly and this is accumulated in the blood. In this stage the urine color becomes yellow but stool is normal. Bile comes out from the spit and even from the sweat of the patient. The bile is mixed in the blood. The patient loses his appetite.

Jaundice due to some barrier in the body

Many time the bile duct shrinks due to stone, tumor, knot, birth defect, round worm or plastic surgery. As result there develops a barrier in the gall bladder and the bile doesn’t reach the duodenum and directly gets into the blood. This type of jaundice happens due to this. The colour of the patient urine is yellow and the stool is either white or like earth. Patient is unable to digest fat and the stool starts decomposing in the body. Level cholesterol, and bile increases in the blood and also the blood clotting time. There is an immense itching. The liver enlarges, the conjunctiva of the eyes become yellow. They patient may or may not suffer from anemia.

Jaundice due to loss of blood

When the red blood cells decrease in the body then also jaundice can happen. The Red Blood Cells get destroyed due to infection with the germs of the following diseases: kalazar, malaria, typhoid, black fever. Due to transfusion of the wrong blood group, cognitive reasons and also due to pernicious anaemia large number of RBC’s get destroyed and jaundice happens. Medically this stage is also called “icterus.” In this the liver enlarges but the colour of stool and urine is normal.

Jaundice due to infection with the disease causing germ.

Germs like “syphilis”, “typhiris”, septicaemia, “relapsing malaria”, “pneumonia”, “pregnancy toxins”, “chemical toxins” in which trinitro, “asimobezol”, “arsenic”, “phosphorous”, “ether”, “teraclothane”, “cinofame”, etc. chemicals can induce jaundice upon their toxic infection.
