, vomiting could be suggestive of
problems. The fact that your daughter lost
15 lbs. makes me think she might have developed small
gallstones or even cholesterol
or sand like stones with inflammation. Especially if the
weight loss is rapid, the incidence of gallbladder problem
is more. Folded over gallbladder may mean a contracted
gallbladder from chronic inflammation.
I am glad she is havind the scan which would confirm if
there is cholecystitis
. Slight elevation of bilirubin will go
along with this, although we need to know the total
Bilirubin, Direct Bilirubin and Indirect Bilirubin levels.
If gallbadder related, the direct bilirubin fraction will be high.
If the indirect is high that may indicate a different problem
such as hemolysis or destruction of red blood cells from
some other problem.
I don't think tanning bed
has anything to do with this.
I wish her well.
