Detailed answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the additional information provided.

The cause for high bilirubin is not found yet.
The common causes like alcohol intake, infection with hepatitis B and C has been ruled out.
So tests for other causes should be done which include workup for autoimmune and metabolic diseases.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
