Depends.: This depends on the cause of the jaundice. In any case you should be seeing your doctor about this. I can bet you should not be drinking alcohol or taking acetaminophen.

None: There is no particular diet that will help patients with jaundice. It is important to see a doctor and get the diagnosis of the underlying cause of the jaundice, so that it can be treated appropriately. Jaundice can be caused by liver disease, bile duct disease, pancreatic disease, or diseases of the blood. It can be benign or caused by cancer. Jaundice should never by ignored.
