Brief Answer:
Share reports.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I understand your concern.
The most common causes of such high bilirubin are:
1. Acute Viral Hepatitis
2. Jaundice due to infections like Malaria.

You must have been evaluated.
If possible share your reports.
Actually recovery depends on the cause.
If it is viral hepatitis A and E it should have settled by now.
I am worried for Hepatitis B and C.
So share your reports with me.
Revert with reports
Stay Healthy.
