Jaundice

by

Indications: a yellow discoloration of the skin, mucous membranes, and sclerae of the eyes, It is caused by greater than normal amounts of bilirubin in the blood. It is often a symptom of other disorders, such as liver diseases, as well as GI obstruction and anemia. Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain may also be symptoms. Massage considerations: massage is contraindicated because the liver is not functioning properly and the increased blood flow from massage can overtax a already debilatated liver.
