My Bilirubin Total Serum Is 16 And Bilirubin Direct Is 03 Should I Be Concerned
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

I have hemochromatosis. if i am getting weekly plebotomies will it affect an LFT test? wouldnt losing blood lower your serum bilirubin?
No: Your serum bilirubin is presumably in the normal range, and there's no point trying to figure out why it's a bit up one day and down the next. The decrease in red cells recycled is negligible because you're actually making more of them as replacements. Your SGOT/AST and SGPT/ALT will return to normal if they are up as you recover from this illness. Be glad -- this is the easiest killer to manage. ...Read more

Hb is 16 mg/dl..negative for HBV and HCV
Should I be worried?
Need to follow: This also depends on your transaminases. I saw your message came through Egypt; there's the possibility of a lab error with hepatitis C as the underlying cause. Your workup will probably include a trial of stopping meds. If this doesn't bring it down or you're on no Rx's, and transaminases are also up, you'll be checked for hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmunity and a few others. ...Read more

please help me.
See doctor: 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, the results you provided are far enough away from normal that it would be prudent to see a doctor. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion without examining you. ...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
Hepatitis: Your physician will do labs, take a history, and hopefully find the correct diagnosis. If it is acute hepatitis b or c, it is a relatively easy and familiar situation, but hepatitis from alcohol, drug allergy, wilson's, or any of several dozen other possibilities, the diagnosis may be more difficult. Good luck. ...Read more

All good: 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.

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Other tests like alkaline phosphatase and ultrasounds would be helpful. Also a history of pain, infection, how long have these tests been be helpful. ...Read more

Demand an answer: You're already under a physician's care. Shortness of breath especially at your age is very worrisome even if you're a smoker.

Especially, pulmonary embolization, new asthma ; primary pulmonary hypertension are serious concerns. Stay proactive. ...Read more
My serum total bilirubin came at 1.3, AST (sgot) came at 13, ALT (SGPT) came at 09, Serum Alkaline Phosphatase came at 67, am i danger situation?
No: For the most part, your liver functions are normal, possibly a slightly elevated total bilirubin. Unless you have known liver disease, this elevation is probably benign and should be repeated before getting anything else done, including fractionating the total bilirubin into direct and indirect levels. This can be elevated during fasting or dehydration. Gilbert's syndrome can manifest as this. ...Read more
