This is related to the bilirubin level and is fairly common on thals. The higher turnover of red blood cells causes more bilirubin to be produced. Have you tried taking magnesium? That can sometimes help lower the turnover of red cells.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

I've never tried taking magnesium? Is it in a tablet form?

Yes, magnesium is found in tablet form. I take 500 mg daily.
