how advanced is cirrhosis when skin and eyes are yellow?

Very advanced: If your eye is yellow the bilirubin is not that high and liver disease may be mild. It even is seen in hereditary anemias without liver disease. But if your skin is also yellow then the bilirubin is very high and liver disease is advanced. Must see your GI specialist.
