Direct To Indirect Bilirubin Ratio
Bilirubin direct and indirect fluctuate (indirect 1.2, direct 0.1, total 1.3...Another test: indirect 0.43, direct 0.54, total 0.97), lfts normal.
Might be Gilbert's: A relatively large portion of the population has something called gilbert's, which is completely harmless, and causes elevated indirect bilirubin in times of stress or illness. If you are completely healthy and just have an elevated indirect bilirubin from time to time, it is almost certainly gilbert's. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks. ...Read more
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

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

My total proteins in 8.2, albumin 5.4,globulin 3.3, Total Bilirubin 0.7,direct 0.5. Is that something to worry?Other Liver values under normal.
Can gilbert's also present with mildly elevated direct bilirubin (0.4-0.7)..with elevated total (1.4-2.2) Mostly indirect still some direct elevation?
Not from Gilbert's: Gilbert's syndrome causes a deficiency in the enzyme that converts indirect bilirubin to direct bilirubin. In other words, the only issue is that indirect bilirubin is converted to direct bilirubin more slowly. People with Gilbert's are not unhealthy from it and are not considered to have a "disease." If direct bilirubin is elevated, something else is going on. ...Read more

Chronic Elevated Total bilirubin (2.5) direct bilirubin (0.5) and indirect bilirubin (2.0). All other liver enzymes are normal. What causes this??
Sounds serious: Hello again Matt. If your direct bilirubin is actually 0.5 mg/dL now, then this is more than Gilbert's which I understand is diagnosed. If this is not a lab error, then I suspect you have cholestasis too for some reason and you deserve a workup by somebody who's good with liver disease. Actually, the alprazolam / Xanax you're taking occasionally causes this. You might start there. Best wishes. ...Read more
