Bilirubin (Definition)

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

RBS-65Mg, UREA-30Mg, CREATININE-1.2Mg, BILIRUBIN TOTAL-1.38Mg/dL, BILIRUBIN DIRECT-0.43Mg/dL, SGPT-48U/L, Haemo-16.7.Do I have anything to worry about?

No: 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, (other than RBS which I do not know about) your lab results are fine and are not a cause for concern. ...Read more

Probably not: First of all, you need to check what the range of normal values are for the lab that processed your blood sample. The blood urea may be on the upper side of normal, but with a normal or slightly elevated creatinine, meaning you may be dehydrated. The TBIL is slightly elevated but normal DBIL, consistent with dehydration also. SGPT may be a bit high, would suggest to repeat these labs ...Read more

I have bilirubin level of 3.4, creatinine of. 28, BUN/Creatinine of 43, and protein of 5.8. Everything I read suggests severe liver disfunction, ????

Kidney function: The results you listed are more related to renal function. Make sure you are drinking enough water and that you f/u with your doctor. This can happen when you are dehydrated, have an infection (viral or bacterial) with certain medications. Find out what the cause of the dysfunction is so that you can properly address and treat it. Good luck, hope you feel better soon ...Read more

What amylase level is too high for female? What can be problems if also high BUN/Creatinine ratio, high anion gap, and high direct bilirubin?

What amylase level is too high for female? What can be problems if also high BUN/Creatinine ratio, high anion gap, and high direct bilirubin?

Why do you ask?: Amylase kay be very high without being a problem because of a harmless variant called macroamylasemia. The ratio is useful only to explain other abnormals is obvious disease. Same is basically true if the gap. If you feel well, slightly high direct bilirubin may be meds or a minir metabolic glitch. Your physician is your best guide. ...Read more

Lab test report -: creatinine is 1.3 mg/dl, globulin 6.9, direct bilirubin -2.5, lactate dehydrogenase-297u/l, GGT is 19, AFt is 12.7ng/ml...pl advice?

Need more info: Your creatinine is slightly elevated. Need to know units of measurement for bilirubin though. If this is measured in mg/dL than it is high (normal range 0.3 to 1.9 mg/dL) and may reflect liver disease. However, if it is measuring in umol/L this is normal. Recommend speaking with Dr. To clarify significance of lab tests. ...Read more

Losing weight through exercise and healthier eating and taking meds, but total cholesterol, non-hdl cholesterol, bilirubin, and creatinine levels high?

Losing weight through exercise and healthier eating and taking meds, but total cholesterol, non-hdl cholesterol, bilirubin, and creatinine levels high?

How high?: Slight elevation in creatinine may be due to increased muscle mass, dehydration, increased protein intake, but should be evaluated by your doctor. Slightly elevated bilirubin may be a "normal" variant or the effect of vigorous excercise. High cholesterol and non-hdl cholesterol may need additional intervention by your doctor. ...Read more

Is high bilirubin always dangerous?

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

What causes the bilirubin to build up?

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
