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

There's no really problematic methologic interferences with today's bilirubin assays. One causes of possible error is a switched specimen or one left in sunlight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

0 to 1 by our lab: Depends slightly on lab used. Our lab uses 0.0 to 1.0 fmg/dl or total bilirubin and 0.0 to 0.3 for direct bilirubin. Direct/conjugated bilirubin can be elevated in liver/biliary system disease, and indirect/unconjugated bilirubin can go high with hemolysis (break-up of red blood cells in blood stream), can be a harmless inherited condition (eg gilbert's), and has various other causes. ...Read more
