Bilirubin (Definition)

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

What do your bilirubin levels in the blood indicate about your health?

Nothing if normal: If indirect bilirubin is up, one might be breaking down red cells fast, or Gilbert's is a mild illness in which jaundice is a bit worse if you miss a few meals. If direct bilirubin is up, bile's blocked physically or perhaps by meds or a metabolic kink. If both are up, perhaps the liver cells have been damaged. Variations within the healthy range are meaningless. ...Read more

You're sick: Get the care of a competent physician. The "hepamerz" stuff you're taking isn't going to solve anything. You need to find why you've got notably high transaminase and bilirubin. If you're an extreme athlete, taking rx and/or doing lots of alcohol, stop ; retest. Otherwise, labs for hepatitis a/b/c, hemochromatosis, immune hepatitis, wilson's, maybe more. Would encourage you to exercise as well. ...Read more

If my levels of bilirubin and urobilinogen in urine is normal, does this indicate a healthy liver? I'm having routine liver enzyme tests and nervous.

If my levels of bilirubin and urobilinogen in urine is normal, does this indicate a healthy liver? I'm having routine liver enzyme tests and nervous.

Liver enzymes: While it is encouraging that these urinary tests are normal, they are not enough to ensure that your liver is healthy by themselves. If your doctor recommended routine screening tests of your liver, the blood tests are the only way to go. I would not worry; the vast majority of the people having a routine screening have completely normal liver tests. Good luck. ...Read more

I have elevated CRP and C4 levels. C3 is normal. Last two blood work-ups also revealed slightly elevated bilirubin levels. What could this indicate?

Non-specific: Interpreting blood work can be a very tricky proposition. Each lab values needs to be interpreted within clinical context and in association with other blood tests. Elevated CRP can sometimes be normal, other times it is a marker of inflammation. Elevated bilirubin may also be normal but sometimes can be indicative of blood or gallbladder dysfunction. ...Read more

More than ~1.5 mg/dL: Or thereabouts. Whether it means anything is another story. Folks with gilbert's hover between here and maybe 3-4 without being sick. Folks who have hemolysis from illness or extreme athletics run a high bilirubin that's well tolerated. Liver disease and bile duct obstruction are likely to raise bile salts and the jaundice is thus more unpleasant. ...Read more

Hi My bilirubin level is 2.1 is that dangerous?

Just a number.: In and of itself, the bilirubin level is just a number, and as such your number os not very high. It would be prudent, though, to interpret this value with respect to your other liver enzyme values - LDH, AST, ALT, GGT - as well as perhaps a liver ultrasound. Low value, but hard to interpret on its own. ...Read more
