Hello,you have elevated direct bilirubin levels, if it's hepatitis ,SGOT ,SGPT should have been elevated ,normal direct bilirubin level should be 0.2 mg per DL. Intrahepatic Causes,Hepatocellular disease,Viral HepatitisAlcoholic Liver Disease,Biliary Tract Obstruction,Drug induced cholestasis can elevate direct bilirubin. Even hepatitis A can cause jaundice (not always c and b).More over you see very high level liver enzymes.
