Diet Plan for Patients of Jaundice

Jaundice is a buildup of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment released during the breakdown of red blood cells. Too much of this pigment causes the skin, eyes, and gums to turn yellow. 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.
