Question: Dear doctor
My current bilirubin is 2.3 and was 16.5 when diagnosed. If in next test reports it becomes 1 or less than 1, can I go to my office or I have to take more rest? When bilirubin is 1,Is lever pretty recovered or it needs more time to be cured perfectly?

Brief Answer:
As mention below

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear
Understand your concern.
Normal bilirubin level is :0.2-1.3 mg/dl
Your bilirubin is 2.3 mg/dl and it is just above the normal range.
You are in recovery phase.
When your bilirubin will come in normal range, it suggests complete recovery and at that time you definitely start the routine life.
SO I do not think you need more rest.
But avoid the outside food.
Hope I answered your questions.
Get well soon
Best regards
Dr. Sagar
