Jaundice is one of the most common diseases which can happen at any age. It is mainly characterized by yellow discoloration of the skin. This mostly occurs due to an increase in the bile pigments, known as bilirubin in the blood and considered as one of the most common liver disorders which affect almost all the people at some point in time in their life.

In jaundice, the right diet plays a very important role in speeding up the recovery of the patient. We suggested some of the best preventive measures that a jaundice patient should follow –

• The patients should drink eight glasses of water daily as it helps your liver to flush out toxins. It also supports a healthy weight and thins the blood, making it easier for your liver to filter.

• Digestive enzymes may help to reduce bilirubin. Increase the intake of papaya, mango, orange peels, pineapple, etc.

• Avoid the consumption of alcohol, saturated fats, such as olive oil, meats, etc. as they are harder for the liver to process.

• Vitamins play a significant role in helping jaundice patients recover faster. Vitamin B helps to absorb and breakdown the fat in the body. Vitamins A, D, E, and C are important to strengthen the recovering liver. Their antioxidant properties promote bile level increase and help a person to recover faster.

• The patient should do exercise daily for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, as by exercising there are proper secretion and regulation of hormones.
