Occurrence of jaundice, Biology

Occurrence of Jaundice
  1. Excessive production of bilirubin - this occurs in some diseases due to destruction of large number of red blood cells in the liver.
  2. Obstruction to the flow of bile - this may occur when bile is flowing from liver to gall bladder or from gall bladder to intestine. This may occur when stones are formed in the gall bladder.
  3. Improper functioning or death of liver cells - this occurs when a person is infected with hepatitis virus.
  4. Another reason for improper functioning of liver cells is due to taking of foods contaminated with hepatotoxins, drugs that damage liver cells and contaminated food.
