Good night … I want to ask my child just born but the bilirubin 13.8 is dangerous or not …? But now it’s in the hands of the doctor and given laser therapy … thank you

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, of course you need to explain in advance the exact age of your child at this time. In addition, it is also important to know, whether your baby is born at term or prematurely, whether there are certain risk factors for the baby (for example, if there are breathing problems in the baby, infections, certain genetic diseases, etc.). The normal value of bilirubin can be different in babies aged 1 day and 7 days, although both are called newborns. This value can also be different in infants aged 7 days who are born at term and infants aged 7 days who are born prematurely with certain risk factors. For example, the value of 13.8 can be very high and dangerous for babies aged 1 day born at term, but it could be still quite normal for babies aged 7 days who are born term.

You should discuss directly with the pediatrician who is caring for your child. Very high bilirubin can be dangerous for children if appropriate therapy is not taken. The therapy given to your child is called phototherapy (not laser therapy).

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
