Yes and it depends : On the cause. 2.4mg/dl is high for total bilirubin. First thing to do is to find out if it is direct or indirect or both types of bilirubin that are elevated. High bilirubin can be due to liver disease, hemolysis, biliary obstruction and the treatment is dictated by the cause of the abnormality.
