Have DJ syndrome. What is the treatment/medicine for high bilirubin level of more than 25 with itching, pale stool, yellow urine n eyes, low appetite?

Needs evaluation

Feces
Dubin Johnson Syndrome causes a direct hyperbilirubinemia that is benign. A bilirubin of 25 with itching and fatigue raise concern for obstructive jaundice, and this needs to be differentiated and treated appropriately. DJS in and of itself does not require medical therapy. See a doctor promptly.

Medical first

Recommend detoxification & stabilization of your medical condition. Do you have an addiction medicine specialist treating you? Alcoholics Anonymous is a 12 step program that is the back bone for sobriety programs for most. Inpatient rehabiltation programs can be very beneficial.

My bilirubin is normal but my eyes colour is yellowist you tell me treatment my eyes and em treatment in home......... ?

Yellowish eyes

Eyes
If you have normal liver function, then the yellowish tint may be normal for you. The color of an individual's white of the eye can vary. Staying hydrated and using occasional get-the-red-out drops may be helpful. If not, I would just ignore it. If it worsens, you should go see an eye doctor.

Can't tell here. Depends on cause of your problem. Could be due to infection (typically viral), toxic reaction to meds, immune, inflammatory, bile obstruction due to stone, tumor, etc Also depends on what levels were at their worst (if this is improvement). Dietician can be helpful..

My brother has 3.5 bilirubin in his blood, is he suffering from jaundice? Is it something to worry abt, What is best treatment? Any food restrictions?

It depends

Bilirubin
By definition, Jaundice means yellow skin or eyes caused by elevated bilirubin. It generally requires a bilirubin of at least 3 to be noticed. The potential causes are numerous. More information regarding the other liver tests is needed in order to expand on the potential diagnoses.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Why does strenuous exercise lead to elevated bilirubin level in blood?

Hemolysis

Pathologist
Very strenuous exercise that involves pavement-pounding can destroy enough red blood cells that the bilirubin and reticulocyte counts go up. As a pathologist, I'm always reminding folks to look at the person, not the numbers. If your bilirubin's up and it's not jogger's hemolysis or Gilbert's, try to find the cause with your physician's help.
