@remus Hello yes it is a symptom and Alcoholic jaundice signifies the progression of alcoholic liver disease, and it’s often found as a result of cirrhosis, the final, irreversible stage of the condition. It’s caused by an excessive amount of a substance called bilirubin in the blood, which causes a noticeable yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes. Alcohol causes liver problems because it has to be processed by the organ in order to be removed from the body. A consistent onslaught of alcohol can be extremely damaging for some drinkers’ livers, leading to the progression of alcoholic liver disease. The first stage is characterized by a fatty build-up in the liver, which then progresses to hepatitis and finally to cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is the stage of alcoholic liver disease when the individual is most likely to develop jaundice. It can happen in hepatitis, but it’s more likely to be indicative of a severe case of liver disease. You should ask him and help him in getting rid of alcohol. Thanks.
