Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Limp, yellow (jaundice), enlarged liver (hepatomegaly), and low blood pressure (anemia) most often indicate a disturbance in the liver.
The liver is an important organ that functions in detoxifying toxins in the body. The liver is also useful in destroying old blood cells, storing energy, storing folic acid, also producing cholesterol, triglycerides, protein, hormones, and bile. Various disorders of the liver can cause complaints like what your sister is experiencing right now, for example infection (hepatitis), alcoholism, autoimmune disorders, drug poisoning, benign or malignant tumors, to liver failure. Often, sufferers of liver disorders will experience nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, weight loss, shortness of breath, thick urine such as tea, pale stools, and many other complaints. Anemia that your sister has experienced can be related to malnutrition, impaired red blood cell metabolism, or also other bleeding, both visible to the eye (for example in the form of vomiting blood) or not (such as blackened faeces, so often ignored).
It is also possible, besides due to the disruption of liver function, complaints that your sister has experienced indicate a disruption in the bile duct, pancreas, blood cancer, or many other possibilities. Without checking him directly, of course we cannot ascertain the conditions underlying his current complaints.
We suggest, judging by the condition of your brother is quite heavy, you try to check with your specialist in internal medicine so that his condition can be evaluated comprehensively. A series of examinations, including laboratories, X-rays, ultrasound, biopsy, etc. will likely be done by doctors so that treatment can be given on target. As a preliminary treatment, you just need to make sure your brother is resting (bed rest), eat a variety of nutritious foods, stay away from alcohol and drugs, do not consume any drugs, and do not ever do any heavy activities.
Hope this helps ...
