Your test results show damage of your liver ( cirrhosis).
It is typically low albumin, high bilirubin in the prognosis of liver cirrhosis.
you need to be physically examined , you need to do further exams like abdominal ultrasound to distinguish if you have ascetic fluid or not. This is very important in your treatment of cirrhosis.
