Diet for Jaundice

Liver is mostly known as the chemical factory of the body, because most of the activities of bio-chemistry takes place within the liver or under the observation of liver. Liver generally secretes bile pigments in to the bile which are secreted via gall bladder as bile.
In two conditions these pigments increase many fold in the body- first where production of the bile pigments is increased due to some reason, in second condition liver is not able to eliminate these bile pigments via normal route. Once level of pigments is increased in the body; skin and mucosal linings of the body start appearing yellow because of the color of these pigments- discolor the skin and mucosal linings of the body. Because all the activities of the liver are dependent on the food what we eat- because it processes the food- so this is important to manage the diet properly for the wellbeing of the liver.
