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?

i am almost 43, female, 170 pounds,having an elective surgery in 3 weeks, i only take birth control pills (9 years now) and tylenol/ibuprofen when on period, recently took for several months-over the counter (benadryl, allergy stuff for my severe allergies- round the clock) Prior to that was sick with needing antibiotics/inhaler for terrible cold, WELL- ALL MY LABS are beautiful, all normal. THE ONLY ONE slightly elevated (depending on the lab - ONE LAB range shows ALT/SGPT of 30-65/ another shows 7-56) so these would make MY ALT of 49 NORMAL.But the lab I went to show 2-45 making my 49 only 4 points over. I DO NOT DRINK, I am thinking since ALL MY OTHER labs are PERFECT esp the ones in relation to liver correlation, that perhaps the meds have done this?? I have had negative results for Hep B and HIV (drawn during my last pregnancy in 2010) so I am thinking perhaps this is elevated due to the over the counter stuff I took?? WILL THEY DENY my surgery over 4 lousy points if my HEALTH/HISTORY is otherwise PERFECT. based on the other posts, I feel perhaps it is medication. I can NOT see my Primary doc not clearing me for surgery just for 4 points.? thank you for your time

Dear Doctor, For the last 5 years I am facing a problem with my stomach. My stomach feels very full in the evening. Even if i feel like going to the toilet, it does not happen. I cannot empty my stomach at one go in the morning. This problem is repeatetive. I took alopathy but did not help, hence went for homiopathy, which helped for 2 years. But this problem has come up again. In 2004 we did some tests on the liver and found that SGOT, SGPT and Alk phosphatase is above the limits. Doctor said that its not worrying and did not suggest any medication. Now I am worried that what is the root cause of the problem, is it liver, is it my stomach, or my digestive system. I took Ayurvedic as well for 2 weeks, but the effecct lasts only till I take medicines. Pls. suggest what should I do.
