An increased bilirubin test can indicate some kind of blockage of the liver or bile duct, hepatitis, liver trauma, a drug reaction, or long-term alcohol abuse. It can also be due to certain inherited disorders caused by abnormal bilirubin metabolism. If this is something that is new, your doctor should do further testing to determine what the exact cause may be.
