Billirubin Elevated Pre Diiagnosis?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was going over my CBC that I had 3 weeks ago when I ended up in the Emergency room.... Now I don't know if the doctor did not notice it or he just decided not to bring it to my attention but I just realized that my Billirubin level was slightly elevated to 2.0 mg/dl... Now at the time of the blood work I was rapidly losing weight, dehydrated and my colon was inflamed so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it but, did anybody have elevated Billirubin levels Pre-diagnoses? I have an appointment in a week to get complete blood work and some Vitamin panels done. Hopefully my Billi levels have dropped since going gluten-free.

I am not diagnosed , My bilirubin count has been in that range for atleast the last 5 years( 5 years ago was when I started ASKING for my blood test results ). My doc ( the one I am about to fire) doesnt seem to be concerned about it.

I am now seeing an endocrinologist and will see what she thinks about it .

I am very interested in others input on this topic

After seeing your post I decided to look through my old medical records to see if my Billi levels were elevated on previous CBC tests. I found one from December of '09 and sure enough!!.. 2.1..It is funny because I now specifically remember the doctor calling me to tell me my blood count came back fine and that my billirubin was slightly elevated and it was nothing to worry about and we would talk about it on my next visit.. Guess he forgot..

Also the ER doctor 3 weeks ago told me it was nothing to worry about also and that some people just have a higher billirubin level that others.. I call Bull****!

Celiac can have impact on the liver. Can't say for sure but you might see those numbers come down after you have been gluten free for a while.

My billirubin was slightly elevated before diagnosis. It normalized within 6 months gluten-free.
