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

I agree the high IGA is most likely from the celiac disease. IGA are immunoglobulins (antibodies) directed at mucus membranes, like those that line the GI tract. Vit D doesn't get absorbed well in celiac disease, so must supplement it to keep it up to normal and monitor it. Please tell us how you feel after donation. Be sure to be well hydrated before and drink lots of fluid afterward to replace the volume you lose.
