My nephew has been suffering from Fever since a few days. We took him to the doctor and he said that he has throat infection. He has been prescribed medicines that aren’t working and he is vomiting. Later, we got him checked again by another doctor who got him drips that still weren’t effective. We took him again to a hospital and CBC, LFT and urine tests were carried. My question is, is it Jaundice? What can be the other issue here? Do we use LFT for jaundice?
Throat infection may cause vomiting due to congestion. However, if the vomiting is persistent/greenish along with stomachache/diarrhea/dark urine/indigestion/general itching of the body then it could be jaundice. LFTs are done to test the function of liver/gall bladder n yes rule out jaundice mostly or hepatitis but it isn't necessary this means he has it. These are the baseline tests used by doctors to rule out liver diseases.
