walking or any other kind of exercise does not have any relation with the bilirubin test. So, if your serum bilirubin level is raised then you should consult a doctor even though all other reports are normal.

Our baby has been released from the hospital on sunday the 14 of April, 2013 with a bilirubin count of 248. On Monday we went back to the hospital after a lab test indicated a count of 358 and he was under the lights for 2 days which brought the count down to 217. This morning we went for a test and it revealed a count of 267 at what point should we go back to the hospital?

Hello Doctor, Last August, my bilrubin count was 110 (against the normal range 0-48) as per my blood test. Doctor said it was Jaundice but very mild. After taking boiled food (without oil and spice) for a month, the bilrubbin count came down to 28. What is maximum figure, the bilrubbin count can go up, in case severe jaundice?

My gastroenterologist suspects Gilbert s. My total bilirubin is 3.2. My direct is 0.44 (normal is up to 0.4). No bilirubin in uring. Urobilinogen is 1.0 (which is the upper limit for normal). I read that in Gilbert s patients, urobilinogen is typically subnormal. Does my 1.0 rule out Gilbert s? (Note: I eat a banana every day, including in the days prior to the urine test. For the urine test, I simply provided one sample at the doctor s office in the morning. That was my second urinatination of the day and was of low amount. All my other serum tests are normal.)

I was diagnosed with NASH (non alcoholic steatohepatits), a hereditary form in my family, 19 months ago and was immediately taken off prescription pain meds (Opana and Morphine ) and obtained my medical marijuana recommendation. 10 days ago my liver function was tested and there are no signs of liver disease . I was very ill when I was diagnosed so I m wondering if the multiple infections I had at the time caused a false positive or if daily use of cannabis (mostly in food) has cured me.
