Doctor insights on:
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
Maybe: Lab tests can be tricky! is it 21?mol/l? Or maybe its 2.1? Or in mmol? (sometimes it can feel like high school physics again with all the unit conversions ;) ) the bilirubin level might be elevated, especially if you have a reason (like a recent bruise, hepatitis, or gallstones). If you have concerns, talk to your doc! ...Read more
Fasting blood work. Total Bilirubin 1.5, Direct Bili 0.2, Alk Phos 44, AST 24, ALT 20, Albumin 4.4, Tot protein 6.6. Is high total Bili concerning?
Not unless its inc--: reasing. Every Lab has its own Reference range, so checking with your PCP would be the best as None of us would have a clue to the Reference your lab uses. Overall your numbers are not terribly high, except the Alk phos, I think. Best check with your PCP and maybe repeat the tests after 4-6 weeks time. Good Luck ...Read more
Blood results: alt/sgpt serum level=40 iu/l, serum alkaline phosphatase=43 iu/l, serum bilirubin level=2 umol/l, serum urea level=2.3 mmol/l. Normal?
Normal: It is very important to know why these were drawn in what sounds to be an otherwise healthy 19 year old. Did you expect to find something wrong? ...Read more
Albumin in range, total n direct bilirubin in range, alk phos-in range, globulin 2.4, ag ratio 1.63 but AST and ALT -262 n 213. Pl advice?
Ongoing injury: The transaminases (ast and alt) are quite high indicating some of your liver cells are injured and leaking contents into the bloodstream. I'm glad your other labs are in range. This may be acceptable given your underlying chronic hepatitis, or it may be a guide to management now or in the future. ...Read more

Looking good: Well these labs look good. Why did you have them checked? You do need to drink more water ...Read more
Total bilirubin 2.5 (Elevated), Direct bilirubin 0.5 (Elevated), Indirect bilirubin 2.0 (Elevated) All other liver enzymes normal. What causes this?
Rerun test: 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, you need to re do the tests in non-fasting state. With the exception of elevated direct bilirubin, the findings are consistent with Gilbert syndrome, which is not a disease. See this site for more info: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gilberts-syndrome/basics/definition/con-20024904 ...Read more
Last month ast, ALT all normal, albumin, globulin, bilirubin not normal, this month albumin, bilirubin, globulin normal but AST and ALT very high.Possible?
Yes: This is not only possible but commonplace. I believe we've met. Cirrhosis is a chaotic system and labs fluctuate based on activity (damage / healing). We're not going to know for certain, but if we could talk to your liver, i'd bet he would tell you he's regenerated a huge number of cells which is why he's working better and has more total cells though still bearing injury. Be glad. ...Read more

May not be: This all depends on the medical reason the tests were drawn. These may all be normal for you. Part of this may depend on the normal ranges for the lab where the tests were done. This of course is best discussed with your physician. ...Read more
My total bilurubin 0.88 direct bilurubin 0.37 indirect bilurubin is 0.51, serum globulin is 3.27 Are these levels normal?
See below: 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 globulin level is higher than normal. It can be due to many causes, e.g., chronic infection, inflammatory disorders, liver disease and myeloma. Please discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more
Explanations for elevated bilirubin ? (indirect high, direct normal)...also normal hemoglobin, low platelets, other liver function tests normal
Need more info: About 2-3% of otherwise normal people have elevated bilirubin, usually less than 5.0 mg/dL. Gilbert's disease is a usual cause and it despite disease in the name, it does not adversely affect a person's health. If you have any symptoms, it would be prudent to see your doctor. Consult this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gilberts-syndrome/basics/definition/CON-20024904 ...Read more
Creatinine level is 1.3mg/dl (range:0.8-1.3)..bun/creat ratio normal,electrolytes all normal, uric acid normal, urinalysis all normal..
No: At your age, kidney function is usually starting to drop of. And/or you may simply be physically fit and decently muscled. When I was lifting weights daily, I ran 1.7-1.8. I see you have hepatitis C and cirrhosis. See if you can get into one of these new studies with the meds that usually cure it. Best wishes. ...Read more
TSH: Depending on your symptoms, other thyroid labs, and whether you're being treated for a thyroid problem, normal TSH range is 0.4 - 4.0 miu/l (milli-international units per liter). If being treated the range is usually tighter, between 0.5 and 2.0 miu/l. Treatment decisions need more data than TSH alone, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
