What Causes The Bilirubin To Build Up
Three mechanisms: High bilirubin that is almost all unconjugated means hemolysis (tearing up red cells too fast) or gilbert's non-disease. If it is mostly conjugated, the bile ducts are obstructed, perhaps by a stone or tumor. If both are way up, probably the liver cells are being damaged. ...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
High billirubin: Elevation of billirubin can be caused production. Accelerated breakdown of red blood cells. Liver disease one of many functions is to remove from blood stream. Blocked excretion billirubin should be deposited in gall bladder as bile salts any thing blocking exit can raise billirubin. I have simply covered about a couple hundred disease conditions.

Continue workup: Your physician probably needs to do some further labs. If you feel well, this is the only abnormality on a chemical profile, and it is indirect bilirubin, and you do not have previous chemical profiles with low bilirubin, you probably have gilbert's non-disease and simply need to know it. Other causes in a person who feels healthy may be medication effect, hemolysis or subtle liver troubles. ...Read more
Lots of things: These are both nice normal values and often this goes unexplained. I once shot my bilirubin way up just by slipping while running and getting an impressive backside bruise -- it got the blood donor center all bothered and i had to tell all. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Seldom: The stone must be in the common bile duct that leads from the liver to the gut. This will raise the conjugated bilirubin. It is a common mistake to think that a gallstone blocking the gall bladder will raise the serum bilirubin. Worth knowing is that maybe 5% of people normally run a high indirect bilirubin (gilbert's) which increased when they get hungry. Causes lots of confusion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
