Re: Bilirubin Count?!
Hi, this isnt really my area of expertise but my dad has high BC and he has gilberts syndrome, it doesnt actually affect him in any physical way and his liver function is fine apart from the elevated bilirubin. Its actually oddly common (about 1 in 10 people) and most people are not even aware they have it and in most cases thre are no symptoms...my dads doctor didn't even bother mentioning to him he had it untill he changed his GP (even though it was documented in his medical records) as all other aspects of his liver function are fine.
I find that doctors like to refer people for ultrasounds...ive had a kidney one, an abdominal one and am gonna have a heart one next week (im only 22)!. I'd think its just to double check and give peace of mind, especially when there are symptoms present in the absence of an actual significant chemical change in the blood x
