Post results just came back

I would like to know what happened with Dave - my results just came back and mine is only 1.1 and my dr wants me to have an ultrasound, since it has been the same now for a couple years. However, my doctor seems to be more focused on gallbladder for some reason. But I also found out my cholesteral is sneaking up - the bad cholesterol. lol, Getting Older SUCKS......

1.1 is basically normal. Your doctor is just being precautions. And he's looking at your gallbladder for sure. Normal bilirubin is up to 1.2 and some labs go to 1.6
Bilirubin fluctuates by the hour. A hematologist told me they don't start to even get concerned until its over 2.0
My bilirubin bounces between .08 and 1.2 and last year it was 1.3 at one time.
No big deal.
It's when certain other things are off with the bilirubin that they worry, low albumin, low platelets, pt time, CBC etc.
