Bilirubin total high 3.5, normal liver function test, negative Gilbert's syndrome, bili direct normal 0.2, normal cbc, what could cause mild bili?

Hemolyzing: You may simply have Gilbert's despite "testing negative for it". Or you may be hemolyzing. It might be worth checking your reticulocyte count; this is often up even without your being anemic in folks who run a high bilirubin like yourself. ...Read more

Bilirubin 1.6, (id 1.3, d .25) other lft normal, reticulyte normal, , ultrasound normal . Bilirubin fluctuates, do I need to keep testing bili?

Bilirubin 1.6, (id 1.3, d .25) other lft normal, reticulyte normal, , ultrasound normal . Bilirubin fluctuates, do I need to keep testing bili?

Probably Gilbert's: Gilbert’s syndrome is due to deficiency of an enzyme that helps to excrete bilirubin, so the indirect bilirubin is usually elevated, without increases in alkaline phosphatase. Patients with gilbert’s syndrome are prone to develop higher bili levels from time to time. The risk increases with fasting, dehydration, repeated and profuse vomiting, infections, exertion and stress and after a surgery. ...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.

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

Normal CBC, normal cholesterols, normal thyroid, normal ferritin. 37 yr female, 5'11", 150.  BAD TMJ, depression, fatigue?

TMJ: Your "bad TMJ" is not likely a cause and effect of the other aspects of your condition. If you have bruxism, this can negatively affect your TMJ. Chronic pain can result in depression. Please see a TMJ expert to try to get your TMJ under control. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. ...Read more

Ttl. Bilirubin 4.5. Direct 0.9 and yellowing of eyes! liver functioning normal. Neg for hepatitis. Gallbladder ultrasound norm. Gilbert's disease?

Yes: Your description is classic for diagnosing gilbert's. Given how many repeated questions you have written questioning this diagnosis, you could spend $400 to get the gene responsible for gilbert's sequenced to verify the diagnosis. See: http://dnatesting.Uchicago.Edu/tests/65. ...Read more
