You're sick: Get the care of a competent physician. The "hepamerz" stuff you're taking isn't going to solve anything. You need to find why you've got notably high transaminase and bilirubin. If you're an extreme athlete, taking rx and/or doing lots of alcohol, stop ; retest. Otherwise, labs for hepatitis a/b/c, hemochromatosis, immune hepatitis, wilson's, maybe more. Would encourage you to exercise as well. ...Read more
Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. 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
Sir, my blood test result. Hb -14.0 TLC-8900 DLC- 58-35 06-01 ESR-20mm/hr Bilirubin- 0.66, 0.21, 0.45 mg/dl. Is the results normal?
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your results are normal.
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.

Depends: Your liver studies are elevated, indicating there may be something going on with the liver. Your lipids are also high and this can predispose to fatty liver. However, other factors like viral hepatitis, alcohol, or certain medications can also raise the liver markers. You should follow up with your doctor or a specialist since imaging studies and/or liver biopsy may be necessary for diagnosis, . ...Read more

Esr (westergren) 29mm/1st hr. I m female 25.I am perfectly normal no symptoms of any disease. What could be the cause of high esr? Shud I b worried?
Need more info....: Your question is too vague - how "high" is high? Remember, as doctors we do not just treat a number - we need clinical correlation. What symptoms were you having at the time.? What is the total WBC count? Lymphocyte count? Why were you tested in the first place? The additional info will get you a better answer when you see the doctor face-to-face and have a discussion with him or her. ...Read more
Depends: It depends on the age of the patient and the level of the jaundice. Jaundice in adults is not as dangerous in that the bilirubin (which causes the jaundice) is not damaging, but it can indicate a condition that is (liver failure.) in babies, a high level of bilirubin can lead to a condition where the bilirubin gets into the brain and causes permanent damage to the developing brain cells. ...Read more
Non-specific: A sed rate of 40 is elevated, but alone is non-specific and can be caused by several different underlying inflammatory causes. If you have pains and they persist, it would be recommended to continue to get a follow-up examination and evaluation by your treating dr. Who can use the sed rate elevation as one test already done in his/her diagnosing process. Best wishes. ...Read more
Relax: How do you FEEL? I wouldn't give this a moment's thought if you feel well and have no other evidence of disease. Sed rate means nothing whatsoever in isolation. It's hard to do right, nobody's going to do anything with the information, and it's not a warning of hidden disease. We order it simply in case there's some other illness that it might illuminate. ...Read more
ESR is a marker of: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a marker of inflammation, thus high inflammatory processes cause ESR to be higher. Infections, cancers, uncontrolled rheumatologic diseases, and endovascular inflammation (i.e. Arteritis) are examples. Thus, elevated ESR values suggest inflammatory conditions which should be sought and treated. Esr is not a complication, but a marker! Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Three mechanisms: High bilirubin that is almost all unconjugated means hemolysis (tearing up red cells too fast) or gilbert's non-disease. If it is mostly conjugated, the bile ducts are obstructed, perhaps by a stone or tumor. If both are way up, probably the liver cells are being damaged. ...Read more
Means nothing alone: The ESR is often done wrong anyway -- our lab once had all-high sed rates because of a jackhammer operator across the street -- and in the absence of symptoms / signs of possible undiagnosed disease is of no value. The same is true of most other labs. If your physicain is not worried, you shouldn't be either. ...Read more
Reference range: Most health adults have bilirubin at or below about 1.4 mg/dl with some variability from lab to lab. Remember that the reference range is not the healthy, "normal" or even "desirable" range. Several percent of humankind of gilbert's non-disease with somewhat higher bilirubins; treating this will simply make you sick. Talk with your physician about any concerns. ...Read more
More than 2mg/dl: This number has to be carefully interpreted in the context of other liver tests, clinical context and medical history. ...Read more
