Hello Winna, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
I'm Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Complaints of yellow eyes is a sign of increased bilirubin in the human body. This increase can occur due to many things such as infection, blockage of the bilirubin drainage, blood disorders, etc. Some of your organs that may experience disorders are the liver, bile, and pancreas.
Bilirubin itself is yellow. Derived from the breakdown of hemoglobin in the blood. The function of hemoglobin is as a binding of oxygen in the blood. After the blood cells rupture, some will turn into bilirubin. Bilirubin is then processed in the liver, then into the bile duct, and finally discharged through feces. From this process if there is a thing that makes this process inhibited and resulted in the retained billirubin in the body. As a result of the accumulation of billirubin this will change the eyes, and the skin becomes yellow. The more yellow the Billirubin levels will be higher in the body.
Some diseases related to the above conditions are:
Hepatitis Bile duct obstruction (stones, tumors, inflammation, etc.) Hemolytic Anemia. Complaints that will be felt apart from changes in the skin and eyes turn yellow are fever, pain in certain parts of the abdomen, weakness, fever, excessive vomiting, black / blood bowel movements, weakness, dizzy head, etc. These complaints will not all appear. Depending on the type and course of the disease itself.
To distinguish one disease and another disease must be done by a direct examination by a doctor. Both the physical examination of the abdomen or other additional examinations such as ultrasound, direct / indirect billirubin examination, etc. But you do not need to panic or worry too much immediately consult a doctor in the nearest internal medicine to find out your father's condition.
All you can do at home is:
Ask your father to get enough rest and enough food and drink every day to increase body immunity. Monitor the condition of the yellow, the easiest eye and advised to lay. Be careful of several infectious diseases, in this case hepatitis, understand how it is transmitted. Use cutlery and drink separately, remembering that you haven't known your father's illness yet. Thus the answer I gave, hopefully answer.
Thank you, good luck always :)
