The first sign of liver disease

The first sign of liver disease, that is Jaundice (Yellowish discoloration of the sclera of the eyes) due to accumulation of bilirubin, occurs with bilirubin range of 2-3 mg/d. Skin discoloration occurs at much higher levels. 

Some general some symptoms of liver disease include nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, ‎indigestion, change in stools, jaundice, itching, etc. ‎In severe conditions with greater liver dysfunction abdominal distension, swelling of the legs, ‎anorexia, lethargy could be evident. 

Bilirubin is an excretion product, and levels found in the body reflects the balance between ‎production and excretion. ‎ 

The normal range of Total serum bilirubin lies in the range of 0.1 - 1.2 mg/ Dl. 

But in the determination of any liver conditions, just elevated bilirubin or liver enzymes levels are not significant. 

If you do not have any other signs and symptoms other than the yellowish discoloration of your eye then it would be insignificant and you need not worry about it.
