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

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
Reference range: Most health adults have bilirubin at or below about 1.4 mg/dl with some variability from lab to lab.
