Yellow eyes
I dont feel myself today, so im wondering if im getting sick. Im extremely tired (often tired) and have no energy. Ive noticed that the whites of my eyes seem abit yellow? They are certainly not white and healthy looking. They are also abit blood shot. What do you think it is? Maybe i have a vitamin deficiency? I really want the yellowness to go away, it makes me look unhealthy. Help?

Dear Worried
You need to have your doctor take a look - it can be a sign of liver infection like Hepatitis or your liver is not working as it should. It can also be due to breakdown of your bloodcells faster than they should.
