I just had a series of blood test done and my Bilirubin level is 2.94  should I be extremely worried ?

Below: You may have Gilbert's Gilbert's (zheel-BAR) syndrome is a common, harmless liver condition in which the liver doesn't properly process bilirubin. Bilirubin is produced by the breakdown of red blood cells. If you have Gilbert's syndrome — also known as constitutional hepatic dysfunction and familial nonhemolytic jaundice — you're born with it as a result of an inherited gene mutation. You might not know you have the condition until it's discovered by accident, such as when a blood test shows elevated bilirubin levels. Gilbert's syndrome requires no treatment. ...Read more

In my blood test report my bilirubin total was 1.39mg/dl. Is it high or normal and how to reduce it. Haemoglobin level is 14.7 gm%?

Sounds fine to me: You're a young man, i'm betting you feel fine, and you're not a bunch of numbers. This is high-end-of-normal, i'm going to assume it's mostly indirect, and several percent of folks run high because of gilbert's non-disease -- a variant biochemistry. ...Read more

My yesterday's blood test shows higher Red cell distributio width - 15.2 ( normal 11.6 to 14%) . . Also my Bilirubin level 1.51%, (0.2 to 1 norm) .

How do you feel?: Your physician can determine whether the slightly high bilirubin is Gilbert's or something worth investigating. High RDW is no danger but a marker for any of a variety of things. Mine was way higher when I donating blood every eight weeks. If you feel well, relax and be happy for good health. Best wishes, I have heard that the Volga is beautiful in the spring. ...Read more

I am 37 yrs .Drinking alcahol up to 2 yr before , my liver condition is grade1 fatty liver, bilirubin level 1.7 to2 for the last 2 yr other test normal?

Get a consult: Two years after ending alcohol abuse, without cirrhosis, the fatty liver and elevated bilirubin are not due to your alcohol abuse. I'm glad you stopped. Your fatty liver may be due to anything from hepatitis c to non-alcoholic fatty liver; the bilirubin may simply be gilbert's. Normal transaminases speak against serious illness. Demand answers from your physicians. ...Read more
