Many, such as TTP.: There are many causes for both kidney problems and for jaundice, which appears as yellowing of the eyes.

Yes: Yes you can get kidney failure from not drinking for a longtime. But right now I think you are just dehydrated. There is no way for me to ask you why you have not had water in 2 days but if you have decided not to, it is not a good idea and I hope you are taking other liquids. If you are not, and you just don, t feel like, get evaluated. Keep hydrated.

SAM E and phenobarbital or tmg for high bilrubin (gs) (yellow eyes)? Are these safe to take? I have no any other issues. Just yellow eyes!
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
Pinguecula: Yellowish deposits that grow on the white of the eye. Very common- worse among those whose ancestry is close to equator. If you are really miserable, you can have them excised.
It depends: If the whites of your eyes are completely yellow, you may have a condition called jaundice and you need to see your primary care doctor to have your liver function tested. If there are just some localized yellow spots, typically in the nasal corner but sometimes in the temporal corner, these may simply be pinguecula which are benign, callous like growths.

No: If a baby naturally has a yellowish tint to the whites of their eyes, there is really no natural treatment. However, if it is a newborn with jaundice, the yellow will lessen when the jaundice goes away. If it is an older infant who is feeding baby food and receiving a lot of carrots or other orange/yellow vegetables in the diet, reducing these can reduce the degree of yellow tint to the eyes.See 1 more doctor answer
