Very: Bilirubin tests are very accurate in measuring the level of bilirubin. An elevated bilirubin does not always necessarily indicated a severe disease and the bilirubin can be elevated for a number of reasons.

Very: They'll tell you how much conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin are in your blood. What it means is for your physician and you to figure out.
