DIET CHART FOR JAUNDICE

INTRODUCTION

In Ayurveda, jaundice is known as Kamala. It is a common condition caused by the increase in Bilirubin level in the body. It can occur due to inflammation of liver or an obstructed bile duct. Symptoms may include fever, fatigue, and a yellow tinge on your skin and eyes or vomiting and body weakness. A balanced diet consisting of the food groups, low-fat, low-protein, high-fluid, and high-carbohydrate will help liver to recover and reduce jaundice quickly. It is strictly advised to avoid high-calorie, processed foods, bakery foods, meat, junk foods, fried foods, alcohol, and high salt intake as they are difficult to digest and may cause liver damage.
