Does small amounts of bilirubin show up in urine if I haven't eaten in two days?

It still might.: High bilirubin can come from hemolysis of red cells, liver damage, or gallstones. So if a lot of your red cells are being destroyed, or you have a liver issue like cirrhosis, or hepatitis, or a history of gallstones, you can have at least some bilirubin in your urine, even if you didn't eat. In fact, not eating might cause it due to the liver using your reserves. If it persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

Had lft and my bilirubin is 1.7 and range is 0.2- 1.1 and in my urine protein traces are found, why is this so?

Big picture: Several percent of humankind run a bilirubin in this range because of gilbert's non-disease; the bilirubin is almost all indirect. If you've had previous chemical profiles and this has been present; it's probably gilbert's, otherwise you'll get a workup, perhaps some meds you are taking. Trace protein in the urine is generally of no concern. ...Read more

You say you have cirrhosis and it is no surprise if you've got a bit of extra conjugated bilirubin in your blood spilling into your urine. I hope the cirrhosis can be addressed; if it's hepatitis C, perhaps you can get a cure with today's meds; if alcohol, perhaps abstinence can reverse it. Be strong & stay proactive. ...Read more
