Unlikely: Typically with liver disease both the albumin and INR are low. The liver is an organ that is response for packaging both proteins absorbed from the GI tract (albumin) and producing clotting factors (INR). A high INR and low bilirubin is usually associated with liver disease given difficulties producing these factors. A low INR is nothing to be worried about unless taking blood thinners.
