What causes high bilirubin?

Dear Doctor, I am suffering from high bilirubin levels of upto 52.8 (as on date 8/6/14). Initially 5/5/14 i was suffereing from hep E Then the sgpt ot and other lft levels came down to normal on 24/5/14 except the bilirubin level (22). Then after this i was put on heptral 400mg ( BD ) for next 10 days. But the bilirubin levels kept going up till 52.8. Then i was put on progressively decreasing dosage of omnacortil 30 mg till omnacortil 5 mg And ursocol 450 mg sr. I did saw a decrease in the bilirubin level and it came down to 33 but then its still on 34 level now as on 21/6/14. Kindly suggest what should be followed as levels are not going back to normal.

Hi thanks for contacting HCM.
It is good that after infecting with hepatitis E , your enzymes level are now decreased ..

Your bilirubin value will be normalise gradually within time....

Meanwhile strictly follow some good advise below.....

Take fruits and green leafy diet more.

Use very very less oil in cooking.

Avoid bad fat diet like cheese, ice cream , beef meat, cookies , butter , baked pestry etc....

Avoid refined food...

One tsp carom seed and one tsp cumin seed crushed into powder , mix them and swallow with water daily...

Grind the carrot and spinach leaves to get juice and taken early in the morning.

Avoid alcohol if habit.

Take care...
