    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: Essentials of Jaundice Busting Diet (must be signed in to view)

    Hi. Your article contains a number of problems. First, it's a promotional article for the medical group that you work for. HubPages doesn't accept promotional work, so the link will have to go. Secondly, it's a health article, so it requires references.

    Another point is that some of your claims (or at least the way in which you've worded them) are worrying. You say that "the most important and critical point for reversing jaundice is staying optimally hydrated." Hydration is important for health, but the most important point in dealing with jaundice is generally for a doctor to discover and treat the underlying cause of the excess bilirubin. A healthy diet is certainly important in the recovery from disease, but I think you should add more emphasis on the role of a physician.

    The title of your article implies that you can treat jaundice with diet alone, so you might want to think about changing it. It would also be a good idea to check for English errors in the article.

    My ma-in-law had jaundice. It was liver cancer and she died within six weeks of the jaundice first appearing. Don't think diet would have helped much.

    Jaundice is a symptom, not a disease in itself.

    Also you recommend fruit, but fructose can put the liver under stress. You even emphasise grapefruit but...

    You could kill someone with that advice.

    Nopes this jaundice is not a liver cancer it is somehow similar to hepatitis A. In jaundice level of bilirubin is increased and turned the color of eyes yellow

    Jaundice is a symptom, never NEVER a disease.
    If your patient has malaria, and the increased level of bilirubin is causing jaundice, will the patient get any better if he drinks more? Eats the foods on your list?
    Cancer of the liver is one of the things that can cause jaundice. (A bile duct carcinoma, for example, will not allow the bilirubin to be excreted normally. Jaundice will occur.)
    If this is going to pass QAP it is going to need a lot of work.

    I have concerns about who actually wrote the article, too. The writer’s profile refers to a “he” who has a master’s degree in psychology. The bio refers to a “she” who is a pharmacist. Mehak082, you need to get this sorted out if you hope to get an article featured on HubPages. In either case, I’m puzzled why someone with a qualification allied to the medical sciences would write the article in its current form. You will need to make major changes in order for it to be featured.

    The writer is not who he or she claims. I think the writer is also, obviously, not a real healthcare professional but an amateur lifestyle writer, of sorts, who thinks a clickbait title and superfluous information on healthy eating will get a medical article featured here.

      Yeah,if people in her country are anywhere like here that is pretty scary advice. Here in my region of Brazil poor people go to the pharmacy before trying to see a doctor, and a pharmacist that tells people "Oh, you have jaundice, you need to drink more water and eat healthier" is a pretty scary thought.
