Infants With Bilirubin 15.60 Mg?
Hello doctor, my baby is bilirubin 15.60 how do I handle it doctor … thanks
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
You must first explain how old your baby is. In addition, you also need to explain whether your baby is born at term or preterm, whether there are other complications during delivery (for example, babies experiencing asphyxia and not breathing, whether there is severe infection in the baby / sepsis, etc.). Billirubin value in babies will change a lot, especially in the first days after birth. The therapy that needs to be recommended is very dependent on this (baby's age), and also the other factors mentioned above.
You should consult with your pediatrician about the best therapy for your baby. Her pediatrician certainly knows better about your baby's general condition. If necessary, the doctor can recommend phototherapy for children (again highly dependent on the factors mentioned above).
Some things you can do right now to help reduce your baby's bilirubin are to breastfeed your baby as often and effectively as possible. You have to make sure your baby gets enough milk, urinates in sufficient quantities and also defecates in sufficient quantities every day.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
