HELLO, MY BROTHER USED TO HAVE A NICE TANNED SKIN BUT WHEN I WENT BACK HOME TO PHILIPPINES HIS SKIN COLOR BECAME DARKER HE LOSE WEIGHT AND HIS EYES ARE SO YELLOW. I was wondering what kind of disease does he have? I am kind of worried, please i needed anyone's advice about this matter. THANK YOU


Hello Sheila,


Your brother has a symptom called Jaundice. It's when the bilirubin levels in his body are above normal, causing a toxic effect to the body. It's a symptom of a much larger problem. Does he have Hepatitis or Cirrhosis? You will see jaundice a lot in patients who are waiting for organ transplants. He could also have yellow fever. Yellow fever is an acute viral hemorrhagic disease. Did you ask your brother what was wrong?
