Hello, my 13 year-old daughter had a routine yearly blood test related to a kidney procedure she had 5 years ago. Everything came back fine, except her bilirubin level, which is at 1.1.
Her nephrologist wants to schedule for further testing next week. Is this warranted given that 1.2 is the normal level for adults and 1.0 for children? Is 0.1 that big a deal? Isn't it within normal ranges of lab error? She has no symptoms of jaundice at all and feels perfectly fine.
