Bilirubin is a yellowish fluid produced by the liver. Bilirubin is a by-product of heme (component of haemoglobin) being broken down by the body. This yellow pigment is present in everyone’s blood and stool. There are trace amounts of bilirubin present in the blood but elevated bilirubin level suggest an abnormality.
Bilirubin attached to sugar is called direct bilirubin and bilirubin without sugar is called indirect bilirubin. All the bilirubin in your blood together is called “total” bilirubin.
A bilirubin blood test will get an accurate count of all three bilirubin levels in your blood: direct, indirect and total.
If bilirubin is not being attached to sugars in the liver and is not being removed adequately from the blood, it indicates Liver Disease.
The most common reason for high level of Bilirubin in blood is Jaundice. In Hemolysis or conditions where excess red blood cells are being broken down by the body, the bilirubin level in the blood can go up significantly.
Taking this test will help in diagnosis of jaundice, hemolysis or any type of liver disease.
