Elevated Bilirubin
Went for master health checkup recently and found that my Bilirubin total and indirect are at elevated levels. Never had jaundice before. Is there anything I should be doing to get this to normal? What could go wrong due to the elevated Bilirubin? I was suggested to go for LFT (optional) as everything else was in expected levels. Is there a reason Bilirubin can be at higher level when everything else is normal? Appreciate an insight on this. Thanks!
