Hi doctor,

I am a 37 year old male. I did my medical test two days before. My liver function test reports are not good. Do I have jaundice? But I do not feel any symptoms. Do I need any further tests?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com. I went through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • Yes, you do have jaundice. But the level of jaundice is mild. It can occur due to any viral infection.
  • There are two options:- Wait for 6 weeks and repeat LFT or straight away get further testing to know the cause of jaundice. Either way is fine but, I recommend the first option.
  • Your LDL cholesterol level is high. You require a medicine called Roseday (Rosuvastatin) 10 mg every night for at least 3 months to control cholesterol. But this you can start once your liver status has been resolved.
