About Jaundice

Back to the top

Jaundice is a condition in which the eyes and skin of an individual become yellowish and discolored. In adults, this is largely caused by excessive amounts of bilirubin (a yellowish pigment that occurs when red blood cells break down). Excessive amounts of bilirubin may be present in the blood due to bladder conditions, excessive alcohol use, some medication (such as anabolic steroids), or viruses like Hepatitis A and B.

Jaundice is far more common in newborn babies. This is because a young baby’s liver is unable to process bilirubin efficiently enough to clear it from the bloodstream. Newborns produce more bilirubin than adults, due to a faster breakdown of red blood cells early in life. Where mature livers are able to process bilirubin and release it into the intestinal tract, the internal organs of a newborn are unable to process that quickly. This leads to an excess of bilirubin in the body. Jaundice most commonly occurs in infants within the 2nd and 3rd days of life.

Jaundice rarely produces symptoms other than the discoloration of skin and eyes. However, the condition may be caused by serious underlying health conditions.

Risk factors for jaundice include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • An infection of the blood (sepsis)
  • Blood incompatibility between mother and child
  • Liver problems
  • Bile duct disorders
  • Enzyme deficiencies
  • Blood disorders

If left untreated, excessive levels of bilirubin in the blood can lead to serious - potentially life-threatening - complications which can do damage to the brain and other organs. Because of this, even if your baby has mild jaundice, it is important to seek medical attention to check for other conditions and begin treatment.
