See your doctor...: There are many causes of hemolysis, both intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic causes are generally divided into hemoglobinopathies, enzymopathies and membranopathies, where red cell destruction is favored by the given abnormality and can be exacerbated by many and varied triggers. Extrinsic causes are often immune-mediated or mechanical. Treatments vary depending on cause. May see a hematologist.See 3 more doctor answers
Yellow eyes: Jaundice resulting from liver disease can cause this. Far more common though is superficial pigmentation of the ocular tissues that appears yellow. This is very common in darker skinned individuals. This is usually benign and not treated. However, an evaluation by an eyemd is necessary.See 1 more doctor answer
Jaundice: This is the buildup of bile pigments which is the result of liver or gall bladder disease. Incomplete excretion of these pigments stains the sclera yellow. With resolution of the problem, the white of the eye will return to normal. Good idea to see your gastroenterologist or primary care doctor soon!See 1 more doctor answer
Yellow eyes: Please send us photo. It could be jaundice or very noticeable pingueculas or pterygium: the work up for each is very different. If Jaundice, you need to have liver function tests, check for hepatitis & urine test for bilirubin, which indicates that conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is present. See eyedoc2020@blogspot. Com for full work up list. Consult with us first to see which you have.
Depends: If they are yellow because of jaundice from liver disease once liver disease is resolved they go back to white. If it is from a congenital anemia like thalasemia then it will stay the same. You also may be referring to pinguecula that is next to cornea which if inflamed can be treated to become less evident.
Yes, for infants: In most cases, the jaundice in infants improves within 1 to 2 weeks. It is usually physiological (natural). Using "bili tool", as a guide, the infant's jaundice can be treated with special lights, if the jaundice level is high (bilirubin blood test). Every infant discharged home within 72 hours of age needs to be reevaluated for jaundice within 48 hours--> the current standard of care and safe.See 1 more doctor answer
Scleral Icteris: Yellowing of the whites of the eyes is not normal. Liver disease causes a higher concentration of bilirubin in the blood causing the color change. It they look like circular deposits it can be high concentration of cholesterol that has deposited around the eye. It is advisable to stay away from alcohol and try to modify diet to low cholesterol.
No: A person can have "off white" eyes but not yellow. This needs to be examined for systemic causes.
Yes: It's not uncommon for some jaundice (bilirubin levels of 5 to 10 range) to continue for 4 to 6 weeks (very rarely up to 12 weeks), in a breast fed infant. In such a situation, I still recommend getting a total and direct bilirubin (a blood test for jaundice) to make sure, no other condition with high direct bilirubin exist. If so, the infant's stools can be clay colored (not brown or yellow).See 1 more doctor answer
