What else?: Bilirubin of 1.55 mg/dL, if stable, but itself is not a cause for concern. Do you have any symptoms? Why was the test done. It would be useful to discuss the results with your doctor who knows more about your health.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

It depends : An isolated lab test is not possible to interpret without the reasons why the test was obtained and the symptoms you are experiencing. Speak to your doctor about this.
