Hello, the normal reference value for serum total bilirubin is 0.3 to 1.3 mg / dl. Long-term drinking, strenuous exercise, etc. may lead to an increase in total bilirubin. High total bilirubin caused by physiological causes usually recovers spontaneously after adjustment. Hepatitis, obstructive jaundice, cirrhosis, cholelithiasis, pancreatic head cancer, hemolytic jaundice and other diseases can also cause elevated bilirubin. Although your test results are not very high at present, it is still recommended that you attach great importance to it, go to the hospital for follow-up, seize the best time for treatment, master the development of the disease, discover the development of the disease, and fully understand your condition.
What are the causes for no bilirubin showing in a urinalysis?
Normally bilirubin is not found in urine. It does exist in blood.
My most recent blood test (NO fasting before), showed 1.7 mg/dl. I know it's HIGH, but why ?? What can I do to get it to a lower acceptable level ?? Is that a bad thing ?? Thank you Pat Rooney
Hi, Bilirubin is tested when people have jaundice or your Dr. suspect about liver or gallbladder problem. The test requires fasting for 4 hours. Some drugs can make it elevate too. So first of all you discuss with your doctor see any chance the drug you're taking interferes the test. If so, there might be some other tests. Quite a few diseases can lead to higher bilirubin, including hepatitis, Gilbert disease, gallstones, narrowing bile duct, etc.
You might also want to ask about Gilber Syndrome...it does effect your level of billirubin.
We found it out not long time ago, afther they diagnosed my daughter with it.  Im not saying that is your cause, but you might want to check it out and compared your old blood work result if you have them.
