Re: All other liver tests normal - but bilirubin is high?! Confused!

He said high bilirubin can be brought on by anything from Gilbert's, to a viral or bacterial infection. He also said excessive alcohol consumption can overload the liver. He said that since the rest of my bloodwork didn't have consistently high bilirubin that it is most likely an acute thing. He also made a point of telling me to stop googling my symptoms/results because the internet is not 100% reliable and it's easy to self-diagnose.

He also made a point of saying that iron overload could absolutely affect bilirubin levels as well, hence the ablation (basically, I got bled dry lol)

I will know nothing definite until Thursday, however. That's the day of reckoning. Lol.
