i was diagnosed with syndrome of gilbert, thats why i have a yellowish skin (jaundice) i take also cranberry pills to counter jaundice, but doesnt really help i guess, but maybe the pills that i take to stop my hairloss, that i have for several years, might be the cause, those pills are: saw palmetto (350mg) and biotin. i'm out of saw palmetto pills, so im gonna see how i react to that, but maybe u guys can help me out, what can be the cause for my jaundice and/or itchy problem, thank u
From this study (2 months ago):
Also utilizing testosterone pellet therapy for low testosterone. Had colonoscopy today, gastroenterologist said melanosis of colon could be from drinking herbal tea. Everything I have read relates to laxative abuse, senna use etc. Do not use laxatives and the only herbal tea I drink is a roibus tropica tea blend from Teavana (20 oz daily). Eat a diet high in fiber. Also take a multi vitamin (Alive once daily for women 50+). Just stumped as to what else could cause the melanosis in my colon? Thank you!
