Diseases

Jaundice attacks when there is a problem in the liver. This is also called Pilia in Hindi. Medical science calls it jaundice. Every way this disease is a dangerous disease. Sometimes the disease can affect to or extent that the patient dies. The incidence of the disease is more after the rainy season and during the winter season, this diseases happens less during summer season. It is also called acute infective hepatitis or kamlabai. In our country jaundice has spread like epidemic many times. Youth and children are affected more by this disease. However adults can also suffer.

The patient of this disease show yellow nails and eyes. A progress in the disease show a yellow skin. When the secretion of bile stops then it mingles with blood and spreads in the entire body. This disease spreads from the patients excreta, infected water, milk and food stuff. The virus from the patient reaches healthy persons through contact, food, and water. This way a healthy person is also afflicted by this disease. This disease can happen at any time of the year but from august to October the severity is high. In this the viral Hepatitis B is more dangerous. The patient dies in case of liver failure. Sometimes the patient faints. A peculiar smell is emanated from his breath. Sometimes this disease becomes chronic.

Symptoms

  • The color of the eyes and nails become yellow.
  • Color of the urine and skin becomes yellow.
  • Appetite of the patient dims and he becomes irritable.
  • Patient loses the taste of oily food.
  • Patient feels nausea and sometimes vomits.
  • Patient feels tired and weak.
  • Patient has temperature.
  • Patient feels pain just below the right shoulder.
  • Patient trembles in this disease.
  • If the disease progresses patient is drowsy sleepy and faints.
  • Patient starts seeing everything yellow.
  • The pulse becomes heavy and patient suffer from headache.
  • The taste becomes bitter .
  • There is a swelling in the liver which shows as a pain and heaviness below his right ribs.
  • The condition of the patient is low in evening.
  • The stool of the patient becomes yellow or black.

Causes

There can be many reasons of jaundice but basically there are four reasons for the spread of the disease.

  1. Due to the enlargement of liver
  2. Some barrier in the body.
  3. Loss of blood.
  4. Infection with the disease causing germ.

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. In this type of jaundice there is not much change in the colour of stool. Due to this the extent of effect and infection is not known. In this the symptoms of jaundice are not revealed thus the disease becomes severe.
