Doctor insights on:
We all have bili: Bilirubin is a by-product of blood cell breakdown which every living-human has. Small amount is normal, but too much can be toxic to the developing brain. Level of 14 or more in preterm and 17 in fullterm baby is concerning and needs medical attention. Feed the baby--as much as possible, more feeding, faster resolution of jaundice. Consult and follow up with doc..Good luck. ...Read more

Lab test report -: creatinine is 1.3 mg/dl, globulin 6.9, direct bilirubin -2.5,lactate dehydrogenase-297u/l, GGT is 19, AFt is 12.7ng/ml...pl advice?
Need more info: Your creatinine is slightly elevated. Need to know units of measurement for bilirubin though. If this is measured in mg/dL than it is high (normal range 0.3 to 1.9 mg/dL) and may reflect liver disease. However, if it is measuring in umol/L this is normal. Recommend speaking with Dr. to clarify significance of lab tests. ...Read more

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
