Brief Answer: Normal liver profile, nothing to worry about Detailed Answer: Hello ma'am and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. I have gone through your liver profile reports and other than a mildly low level of direct bilirubin, all your other parameters are within the normal reference range, which means your liver is healthy and there is absolutely nothing to worry about. I would not worry about anything, and please speak to your doctor about your liver work, as there is absolutely nothing abnormal about it. I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help. Best wishes.
