Second opinion] Can you answer questions about high levels of bilirubin? My doctor told me it might be Gallstones but I do not think so. I had very little pain, just nausea. I think it may be a more serious problem. Can you have gallstones with out pain? Is there such a thing of false positive with bilirubin blood test? She wants me to do another blood test for bilirubin

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Well this all started with finding out I had Barrett's esophagus and acid reflux. I completely changed my diet. I started getting diarrhea (which has calmed down) but they did blood tests at our patients and found high levels of bilirubin

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I never been sick. I used to drink a lot but quit 40 years ago.

Yes, gall stones is a possibility and can occur with minimal symptoms. False positive can occur and can be tested again. Ultrasound is the next step which can help in making exact diagnosis. If all the other tests are normal then it does not sound anything of serious nature.

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.
