Hello and welcome to HCM,
Raised levels of bilirubin
and yellow colored urine suggest jaundice
The next step is to determine the level of direct and indirect bilirubin levels.
Direct and indirect bilirubin are raised in different states.
Direct bilirubin is raised in obstruction of the biliary tract and indirect bilirubin is raised in hemolytic anemias to name a few conditions.
The other liver
function tests should also be done - SGOT, SGPT, alkaline phosphatase
, and 5- nucleotidase.
These investigations will throw more light on the causation of jaundice and hence its management.
Consult your physician ordering the investigations.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
