I take testcypimate i've had blood work and my t count was high as well as my bilirubin level 1.8. Everything else was normal, should I be concered?

Needs follow up: Your testesterone replacement should not get your serum level higher than about 1000 (depending on the lab). It can cause some liver issues that could increase your bilirubin so this does need to be addressed by your doctor, but i would assume cutting back on the replacement will get both things back in range. ...Read more

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

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%?

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 have a bilirubin level of 31.7 umol/L & my liver US showed fat build up.all other blood levels are within normal range. BMI is 21. Any huge concern?

Elevation of bilirub: Isolated in a young man can be due to Gilberts disease which is a benign congenital condition with defect in the glucorindation of bilirubin. However the etiology of the fatty liver is unclear. I guess a GI specialist will help since your BMI is normal ...Read more

Is a urea blood test reading of 4.4 normal and a total bilirubin level of 12 normal in a mcrc pt?

Is a urea blood test reading of 4.4 normal and a total bilirubin level of 12 normal in a mcrc pt?

Bil is too high: Look up the reference values for those tests in your lab report. The blood urea nitrogen of 4.4 is probably normal while a bil of 12 is very high which may indicate liver disease or hemolytic anemia depending on other test result details that you haven't included ...Read more

I have elevated CRP and C4 levels. C3 is normal. Last two blood work-ups also revealed slightly elevated bilirubin levels. What could this indicate?

Non-specific: Interpreting blood work can be a very tricky proposition. Each lab values needs to be interpreted within clinical context and in association with other blood tests. Elevated CRP can sometimes be normal, other times it is a marker of inflammation. Elevated bilirubin may also be normal but sometimes can be indicative of blood or gallbladder dysfunction. ...Read more

Blood results: alt/sgpt serum level=40 iu/l, serum alkaline phosphatase=43 iu/l, serum bilirubin level=2 umol/l, serum urea level=2.3 mmol/l. Normal?

Blood results: alt/sgpt serum level=40 iu/l, serum alkaline phosphatase=43 iu/l, serum bilirubin level=2 umol/l, serum urea level=2.3 mmol/l. Normal?

Normal: It is very important to know why these were drawn in what sounds to be an otherwise healthy 19 year old. Did you expect to find something wrong? ...Read more

Why does strenuous exercise lead to elevated bilirubin level in blood?

Why does strenuous exercise lead to elevated bilirubin level in blood?

Hemolysis: Very strenuous exercise that involves pavement-pounding can destroy enough red blood cells that the bilirubin and reticulocyte counts go up. As a pathologist, i'm always reminding folks to look at the person, not the numbers. If your bilirubin's up and it's not jogger's hemolysis or gilbert's, try to find the cause with your physician's help. ...Read more

What do your bilirubin levels in the blood indicate about your health?

Nothing if normal: If indirect bilirubin is up, one might be breaking down red cells fast, or Gilbert's is a mild illness in which jaundice is a bit worse if you miss a few meals. If direct bilirubin is up, bile's blocked physically or perhaps by meds or a metabolic kink. If both are up, perhaps the liver cells have been damaged. Variations within the healthy range are meaningless. ...Read more
