Yes it can be: Bilirubin is a pigment associated with the liver/hepatic system and red blood cells (especially hemolysis or breaking of them since bilirubin is found in them).

Does small amounts of bilirubin show up in urine if I haven't eaten in two days?

It still might.: High bilirubin can come from hemolysis of red cells, liver damage, or gallstones. So if a lot of your red cells are being destroyed, or you have a liver issue like cirrhosis, or hepatitis, or a history of gallstones, you can have at least some bilirubin in your urine, even if you didn't eat. In fact, not eating might cause it due to the liver using your reserves. If it persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm an athlete, negative for bilirubin, but 2.0eu for urobilinogen in my urine? Is it normal?

I'm an athlete, negative for bilirubin, but 2.0eu for urobilinogen in my urine? Is it normal?

I would not worry: Most people have one ehrlich unit, the scale goes up to ten, and an athlete often has some hemolysis (just from feet pounding the pavement ('runner's hemolysis'). If your routine labs are otherwise normal, and your personal physician isn't concerned, I wouldn't be either. Hemolysis -- recycling red cells early -- raises urinary urobilinogen. ...Read more

Dark cloudy urine and high bilirubin (31) young man What is the cause? No other symptoms...

High bilirubin : Dark colored urine and increased bilirubin may be due to some form of hepatitis. Usually it's accompanied by right upper abdominal pain and jaundice-yellow sclera of the eyes. Stool may turn pale clay color. There are multiple causes of hepatitis: viral, obstructive due to blockage in a gall bladder or from some medications. You need to see a doctor for further blood work and abdominal sonogram ...Read more

Hi doctors I was wondering how can you tell if there's bilirubin in urine by sight?

Not reliable: The brown color may be distinctive to experienced eyes, and if the foam is more yellow than is common from ordinary mucus bubbles, it suggests bilirubin. If there is bilirubin visible in the urine, a yellow tinge to the sclera (early jaundice) is to be expected -- look in the sunlight. And if you must ask, a physician consult is in order. ...Read more

Is it normal to have 1mg of bilirubin in urine? I was diagnosed with gilbert's disease

Is it normal to have 1mg of bilirubin in urine? I was diagnosed with gilbert's disease

No: A urine test should be negative for bilirubin. There are certain diseases that caused bilirubin to be increased including hepatitis, liver disease, jaundice. Urine will generally be dark yellow with foam. Pyridium, (phenazopyridine) a medication used often for urinary tract infections, can cause a false positive bilirubin. If you have specific concerns, you should see your family practice physician. ...Read more

Had lft and my bilirubin is 1.7 and range is 0.2 – 1.1 and in my urine protein traces are found, why is this so?

Big picture: Several percent of humankind run a bilirubin in this range because of gilbert's non-disease; the bilirubin is almost all indirect. If you've had previous chemical profiles and this has been present; it's probably gilbert's, otherwise you'll get a workup, perhaps some meds you are taking. Trace protein in the urine is generally of no concern. ...Read more

What causes presence of bilirubin in urine? What other lab. Test to confirm it,?

Liver / bile duct: Conjugated bilirubin produced by the liver cells is getting released from the cells into the bloodstream rather than the bile ducts, or the bile ducts are sending it back into the bloodstream. Unless this is a lab error, your blood work will also have elevated conjugated bilirubin. This may be a minor problem witih your own metabolism, a medication effect or serious illness. ...Read more

Urinalysis — detected (trace) ketones and bilirubin (detected trace) means what?

Nothing: Especially if you're hungry, you can have +1 ketones and it's normal. You say you have cirrhosis and it is no surprise if you've got a bit of extra conjugated bilirubin in your blood spilling into your urine. I hope the cirrhosis can be addressed; if it's hepatitis C, perhaps you can get a cure with today's meds; if alcohol, perhaps abstinence can reverse it. Be strong & stay proactive. ...Read more

Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
