Hi...Dear user..,
welcome to HCM..,
Thanks for query..,
Total bilirubin 1.1 mg,after 5days 1.5.,then after 3days...2.8.,
After 5days means total days...13 days maximum 3.2..,
Normal serum bilirubin levels are1 mg%., Direct is 0.25mg%
Here Two main causes will give this picture..,
1) Infective origin..due to viral or,Typhoid etc..,
2) Obstructive...stone, stricture, and neoplasms...
So here Hemoglobin broken and release heme particle again broken and..,
finally release Bilirubin.....normally it could be conjugate with glucuronide..
finally excrete through problem is in liver (Conjugation)...Or ..
galbladder...So go for complete screening tests..CBP, ESR, Ultrscan abdomen..,
consult good physician and ruled out the problem...ok. good luck
I find this answer helpful
