How To Lower Bilirubin Levels In Adult Blood?
Good night. I want to ask. My lab results today total bilirubin 6.90 mg / dl exceeds the normal limit. What is the solution to return to normal?
To answer your question, it is important to first know what bilirubin is. Bilirubin is a pigment substance that comes from the breakdown of old red blood cells, which are then metabolized in the liver and passed through the bile into the intestines and urinary tract, causing the characteristic color of human urine and feces. Elevated levels of bilirubin certainly indicate problems with these components, such as:
liver inflammatory disease
gallbladder inflammatory disease or problems with bile flow
increased production of bilirubin, for example in malaria where red blood cells are destroyed in excess
taking certain drugs
Total bilirubin levels that normally do not exceed 1-2 mg/dL can become abnormal due to the above problems. This condition of bilirubin can then be returned to normal if the main problem is resolved. Therefore, the first step you can take now is to see a doctor directly to find out the main problem causing the increased bilirubin. Here we attach an article about increased bilirubin. Hope it is useful.
