Are low iron levels and high bilirubin levels connected?

In brief: May be, may be not

Further evaluation is obviously needed.
I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition.
