Bilirubin: Elevated bilirubin can result from two main sources-- breakdown of hemoglobin (from red cells) and blockage of normal secretion from the liver (obstruction of a bile duct.) These two sources are distinguishable in blood (bound vs. unbound.) Get more information and correlation of type of bili to be sure.
