How to keep bilirubin levels in control?

I went in for my 3 month diabetes check up today and my endocrinologist mentioned my bilirubin total was 1.7. She said this was higher and my bilirubin is usually higher. This is the first time I have heard about my bilirubin and it being high. Should I be concerned and what steps do I take to help lower it?
