My boyfriend has noticed that recently the bottom whites of my eyes have gotten a yellowish hue..I was just wondering if any of you have dealt with this? I have been looking up different causes, but there seem to be quite a few and I needed something more related to Crohn's.
I did have a urinalysis about a week ago and some bacteria were present that apparently are not supposed to be there. I started taking a three day round of cipro for it yesterday. I'm just wondering if there is any link to the infection and my eyes or if it's something else.

Do you get blood work to check your liver functions while on humira?....yellow eyes indicate something is going on with your liver...I just had blood work b/c I started imuran 10 days ago and my liver functions are now off as a result....you should ask you doctor if humira can cause this...take care...debbie

nono Perhaps I have a jaundiced view of things, but isn't this supposed to be related to biliruben ? confused
Or related to Crohn's uveitis ?

I know most of the time it has something to do with billiruben, but I'm just not sure. I'll bring this up with my GI again next time and see what is going on. I think I just need to get a regular check-up from a PCP sometime too.
Thank you all for your responses :)
