Why is jaundice a sign of pernicious anemia? couldn't it be something else?

Jaundice is not: jaundice is not a sign of pernicious anemia. fatigue, tiredness, memory problem, forgetful- could be found with pernicious anemia. if you also have jaundice- need to find other cause of jaundice-. Go to see your PCP and discuss more with your PCP. referral can be made by your PCP to the specialist if needed.
