What Causes Bilirubin High In The Blood And The Consquence
Sorry need more info: If you have tetany (involuntary muscle contratures) then would consider abnormalities of calcium and magnesium levels. Hyperventilation can cause this and of course there are life threatening causes in which case you wouldn't be writing this question. Would need to know more about your meds and supplements and how high is your gpt? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
I always ve fever and headache. I ve high bilirubin level after blood test but sgpt level is normal. Is the fever caused by the high bilirubin level?
To the extent that: P vera would be associated with increased rbc turnover, a modest increase in bili is possible. However, the disease is one of proliferation more than destruction, so if the bili is quite high we need to evaluate. ...Read more
Depends: This depends on the cause, level, & type of elevated bilirubin (conjugated vs unconjugated). There are many causes of high bilirubin levels, some of which are relatively benign, and some that may be serious. In some cases, high bilirubin may cause yellowing of the skin/eyes or increased risk for gallstones. In newborns, a significantly high bilirubin is dangerous due to the risk of brain damage. ...Read more
I just got my blood results back and everything was good but my bilirubin was high what does that mean? And what is bilirubin?
Gilbert's: Bilirubin's the green stuff in bile; your liver processes it from broken-down red blood cells. A few percent of people always have a mildly elevated indirect bilirubin from "gilbert's non-disease"; your physician knows how to detect this. If you've ever missed a few meals and turned a bit yellow, you can probably self-diagnose. Trust you're not taking meds that cause cholestasis. Your dr can tell. ...Read more
Not Usually: For many labs that value is normal, or close to normal. However, even when high, isolated elevated bilirubin (no other liver labs are high) is usually due to a condition known as gilbert's syndrome, and is not worrisome. You may find other family members have this as well, as it is genetic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
I just had a blood and urine test: high values of Bilirubin (Total 2,65 mg/dl and Direct 0,78 mg/dl). I see the dr next week, should I worry?
Just get seen: This is serious. If you're taking any meds you don't truly need, including any "herbals" (which are often not what they're supposed to be), consider stopping them. ...Read more
