Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am suffering from jaundice for last one month. My current bilirubin is 3.1, SGPT 72.4, SGOT 45.8. Can I join the office after four days of bed rest?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

To answer your question specifically, it is not advisable to go back to work. I have seen your LFT blood reports which are not elevated too high (attachment removed to protect patient identity). I would like to know if you had done any other blood test, urine test or ultrasound abdomen because in jaundice, it is important to treat the underlying cause for it. It might be due to alcohol consumption, smoking habits, liver disorders such as acute or chronic hepatitis, etc. Some complications of jaundice you have to be aware are anemia, bleeding, chronic hepatitis, etc. If you are not vaccinated for hepatitis B or C, please take those vaccines also.

If you are taking any tablets for this jaundice, please continue it. If you have not seen any doctor so far, I would highly recommend you to see a doctor first. Try to avoid alcohol or smoking habits, if you are used to it at once. I would recommend you to undergo a further investigation to know the root cause for your abnormal LFT blood test.

The Probable causes

Alcohol, smoking, acute hepatitis.

Investigations to be done

CBC, urine analysis routine, urine ketones, serum electrolytes, ultrasound abdomen, X-ray chest, and abdomen.

Differential diagnosis

Acute hepatitis, fatty liver.

Probable diagnosis

Acute hepatitis.

Treatment plan

I would suggest treatment after seeing the further blood tests advised.

Preventive measures

Avoid alcohol and smoking strictly.

Regarding follow up

Try to follow up after doing the above investigation advised and list any complaints if you have.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
