It’s 1.5 my stomach hurts sometimes and I have loose stools. Alt and ast are normal
Doctor: DR.EHTISHAM, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Is this the first time bilirubin found to be high or previously it was high as well ?

First time
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Just last month it was low
Doctor: DR.EHTISHAM, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Thanks for the information

This is most likely due to the infection which is giving you stomach ache and loose stools

This is likely to get normal once the infection settles

You just need to repeat it after one month and most probably it will be normal by that time

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
