Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to We can understand the concern you feel.

Bilirubin is a substance that is formed normally from the breakdown of red blood cells. This substance is transported with blood through the liver, bile system, and digestive tract before being removed. Normally, the level of bilirubin in the blood in adults ranges from 0.3-1.2 mg / dL. The condition in which bilirubin levels increase above the normal upper limit is called hyperbilirubinemia. This condition can occur without causing any symptoms, or appear with symptoms such as yellow eyes / skin, itching, abdominal pain, fever, weakness, nausea, vomiting, discoloration of urine and stool.

Hyperbilirubinemia can be caused by several possibilities, including:

 Gallstones Inflammation of the ducts / gallbladder Impaired liver function, can be caused by liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, autoimmune disease Inflammation of the liver (hepatitis) Anemia due to increased destruction of red blood cells Side effects of certain drugs Various possible causes of hyperbilirubinemia cause the need for direct evaluation by doctor. We recommend that you see yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that you can do the necessary evaluation and treatment. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may consider other investigations if there are indications, for example: blood, urine, stool, abdominal ultrasound (USG) examination. The treatment given will be adjusted to the diagnosis of the cause of the condition.

 Get plenty of rest Avoid indiscriminate use of drugs Consumption of balanced nutritious food regularly Do not consume alcohol or smoke To enrich insight, you can read articles about hyperbilirubinemia. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
