Thread: High bilirubin detected on blood test

    High bilirubin detected on blood test

    Hi all 😊

    I recently had a blood test and all came back normal apart from bilirubin - mine was raised at 24 when it should be 21. Doc has requested repeat blood tests in 8 weeks. Iíve been googling and have scared myself to death! 🙄 Does anybody know if there are harmless causes for increased bilirubin?

    Thanks, Louise.

    It can't be anything serious if the doctor is not worried and is prepared to wait 8 weeks to re-test it.

    Thank you Nicola 👍 Dr Google says it may be Gilbertís Syndrome, but I donít know. Iíve just started taking Sertraline, but doc says itís nothing to do with that. Just have to wait and see what next blood tests say.

    Yeah Dr Google will also tell you it is cancer lol.

    Try and stay away from google and trust a real doctor.

    Hi I had a blood test 2 weeks ago and all was normal apart from raised bilirubin but mine is higher than yours at 32. I was googling constantly to find out why etc. Doctor also told me it could be Gilbert’s Syndrome too. She said to have a re rest in 6 weeks (so 4 weeks from now)

    Thanks Mumzy xx It does seem to point to Gilbertís when bilirubin is raised but everything else is normal on blood tests. The good thing is Gilbertís is harmless 😊. Iím 47, so I would have thought I would have been diagnosed by now as Iíve had blood tests in the past (pregnancy, etc). Weíll both have to see what the next blood tests say. Iíve never been yellow, I know that much

    That’s one of the symptoms for GS isn’t it...yellowish skin! I haven’t either! I had my bloods done because I’ve had a lump by my collar bone for 3 years (had it scanned twice, apparently nothing to be concerned about) then I started itching a lot so I googled and it came back saying I have lymphoma! Scared shitless!! So now my bloods are normal apart from this one thing I have it in my head there must be something wrong! I really do my own head in!

    Ah Mumzy, try not to worry as your bloods may be normal next time. Let me know how you get on
