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. Consult this site for more info.

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
What can cause high Active (holotranscobalamin) B12 levels in blood, when red & white cell & platelet counts, liver & kidney function are all normal?
It's just you: This test itself is not mainstream. It is experimental. A high value on a B12 is never a clinical concern. Reference ranges at real labs are set so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. ...Read more
Dad has hemoglobin 9.5 hematocrit 28, MCV 106 and RBC 2.7 mil. Wbc, platelets, kidney, liver, vitam are normal. He got maltofer pill, RBC up. Why anemia?
See hematologist: How old is your father? He has macrocytic anemia- there are different conditions can cause this anemia- from vitamin deficiency, liver problem, thyroid problem, breaking down of red blood cells to problem with his bone marrow. He should ask his pmd to refer him to see a hematologist for further work-up. A bone marrow biopsy may be needed to be done to find the cause of anemia. ...Read more
Neither...: The bone marrow makes platelets. They are produced by the fragmentation of megakaryocytes, which are very large, polyploid bone marrow cells produced by the process of endomitosis. Lots of things influence platelet production and utilization (but that's for another healthtap question). ...Read more

What is your iron saturation percentage? ...Read more

Complicated: It is not too late to be treated, but the damage already done to the liver is not likely to be reversible. This is assuming that your hepatic and splenic enlargement is due to your hepatitis, and not to something else. Please see a doctor and be appropriately managed. ...Read more
Low ALT (11 umol) high albumin (53) high platelets (406) and high MCH (96) - does this sound like liver disease?
Not to me:
That does not sound like liver disease to me, but you can never be sure.
Often with liver disease, lab tests can be misleading. But it is common for the ALT to be high during liver damage, for albumin to be low when liver function is poor, and for platelets to be low when the liver is struggling. These are just guidelines though.
Take care of your liver by avoiding toxins and keeping a good wt ...Read more
Can I do a liver biopsy if the platelet count is 57, Prot time is 15.1, INR is 1.2, PTT is 33.6? Will that cause excessive liver bleeding?
Let doctor decide: I trust that you are not the one doing the biopsy. Depending on why a biopsy is needed, your doctor will decide if the risk of bleeding is outweighed by the information a biopsy will provide. ...Read more

I have stage 4 tnbc before I was to start AC chemo my platelets were too low 85. Started Taxol (paclitaxel) for a week now my liver enzymes are too high 590?
If platelets were low before starting, il'd worry that you have spread to the bone marrow. In that case, you would get treatment anyway, no matter what the counts, in hopes of clearing the marrow. If your liver enzymes are high, there may be liver metastases.
I don't know your'e whole story, but I would strongly consider treating with something like Carboplatin and abraxane. Also check her2 again. ...Read more

1mos post liver resection&gallbladder removal. Platelets over 48hrs 472 to 75. Wbc 13.4, anemic. What causes quick drop in platelet? Is this a concern
Need more details: When did the platelet counts begin to fall in relation to the date of your surgery. What is the current level of Hemoglobin and platelets. If you have not had it checked recently get one. Once we know the current values of your CBC, we can guide you further. Internal bleeding can temporarily lower the platelet count but it should not occur one month after surgery. So something is amiss. ...Read more

Sorafenib decreased platelet count of my father at 72 who's diabetic, diagnosed with hcc & decompensated liver cirrhosis & now unable to take sorafenib?
My friend,: ..You paint a very bleak picture. Your dad is elderly and his bad cirrhosis makes it likely that any treatment for his hcc will cause more harm than good. I would respectfully suggest that you guys start focusing on confort measures rather than additional therapy. Of course, I do not know all the details so this is a conversation to have with his treating oncologist. Best to both. ...Read more
Low platelets 90-130k, saw hematologist, blood tested for cancer/disorders. Liver/kidney/immune tests ok. Can platelets just be low for no reason?
Yes/No: One condition that comes to mind is ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura). A good hematologist can check you for this condition which sooner or later requires treatment as platelets keep going down slowly. You should have your Platelet count checked every few months and enlist (tabulate counts so that you can see if there is a trend downwards. If the count is <100, 000 then you likely have ITP. ...Read more
Liver resection 11/3. CBC 11/29&12/1. Wbc 15.4/anc 7.3/hgb 11/rdw 17.6/platelet in 48hrs went from 472 to 75, mono# 0.8. Why did platelet drop quick?
Ask your doctors...: Two possibilities should be under consideration including accelerated destruction or impaired production. After such major procedure, most of times, the body can undergo self-remodeling so to maintain an acceptable functions. Of course, such much expected recovery may reflect individual functional reserve. So, ask the treating doctor who monitors your conditions. Best wish to health, recovery, . .. ...Read more

Liver transplant with a platelet count of 31. I've had hep c for 25 years and now have cirrhosis. Will they operate on me with my platelets situation?

In any case, the risks of any surgical procedure are balanced by the expected benefits.
