Causes of Neonatal Jaundice - Dr. Kishore Kumar
There can be multiple reasons for neonatal jaundice. The most common cause of jaundice in babies is physiological jaundice, which happens in a normal newborn baby when the baby receives too much blood from the mother wherein the immature liver is not able to take. Pathological Jaundice is when the jaundice occurs before 24 hours of age and when the level of jaundice is much higher and this calls for an investigation. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
Are cases of Neonatal Jaundice common? - Dr. Kishore Kumar
Jaundice is common in the newborn period. This is because all babies have an immature liver and they get more blood from the mother than their liver can handle. 80% of newborns get jaundice but only about 4-5% of them require treatment if the jaundice increases. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
Are investigations for Neonatal Jaundice mandatory? - Dr. Kishore Kumar
Jaundice does not necessarily need investigation. We check jaundice for babies at 36-48 hours of age which gives a predictive value with which we can assess whether the baby needs treatment or not. If the Jaundice becomes pathological then all other causes such as urine infection, thyroid and other problems will have to be ruled out. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
