Hi,
Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
She is obviously having jaundice. There are many different causes of jaundice. So to know the cause and plan treatment, few other tests should be done.
The complete liver panel and an ultrasound scan of the abdomen should be done next. These two will help us know whether the jaundice is due to damage to liver cells or due to obstruction to the flow of bile.
So get these two tests done.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr.R.K.
