Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
High levels of unconjugated bilirubin means your liver is not able to conjugate all the bilirubin of your body. Mild liver dysfunction is there. You can try taking some liver tonics like Liv 52 DS for this. Also, get an ultrasound scan done to see liver texture and gall stones if any.

Hello, I am a stage 1 breast cancer survivor. My oncologist ran blood work and my total bilirubin levels were elevated at 2.0. I understand the normal range is 1.0 I checked old blood work and for like 5 years my levels of bilirubin have been elevated. In 2009, they were 2.0 and 2008, 1.8 and 1.1. What could be the cause of this elevation? What organ should I worry about-- liver? gall bladder? colon? kidney? pancreas? Could it be cancer? I am very worried and don t know how to proceed. Should i consult a gastroenterologist . I am also having a colonoscopy next week? Can they look while i am under anesthesia? What would the procedure be called?
