Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.That can be due to the severe liver disease. Also called jaundice--the bilirubin deposits in the eyes and skin causing yellow discoloration. Usually there will be other symptoms as well like weight loss, appetite loss, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain etc. Liver disease can be due to the alcohol, viral infection, autoimmune disorder or other causes. Liver function test is easy way to screen for that.Another posibility can be due to the beta caroteinemia. This is due to the inability of the body to process beta carotein.
