doctor said there are mild symptoms of jaundice.
my queries are:
1.what is the current status of my liver function?is it serious enough to get worried?
2. what is hepatomegally?can this be cured or will this lead to cirrhosis?
3. doctor prescribed me liv 52 tablet.does it have side effects?
4. what are the diet plans and medications for my current liver condition?
