Hi recently i went for a blood check and found my bilirubin reading at 21. Is that alarming or any area of major concern ?

Just happen I did another blood test in June this year and the reading is less than 10.

Please advice

Hello and good evening
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worry about your problem. I will try to help you.

For your information, there many factors that can cause the bilirubin reading to be raise up. They are:

  1. Liver disease
  2. Bile disease
  3. Damaged red cell
  4. Side effects of some medications

Bilirubin reading of 21 is an alarming because if it is left untreated, it may cause more serious diseases. Therefore, I advise you to refer to a doctor for a proper treatment. You can also have an online consultation with our doctors for more information and further treatments.

I hope this answer will help you. Thank you.
