About Direct Bilirubin Serum Test

Why is a direct bilirubin serum test done?

Every day, the body produces new blood cells to replace the older ones as they die. When the older red blood cells die, they leave behind a small amount of bilirubin. Bilirubin is yellowish in color and is formed via the breaking down of the heme part of hemoglobin. This bilirubin is further broken down by the liver and passed on to the small intestine to be removed from the body via excretion.

A doctor might suggest a direct bilirubin test in Hyderabad when the patient shows the following symptoms:

  • Passage of urine that is darker yellow in color
  • Stool that is the color of clay or light gray
  • Feeling of nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Skin and the whites of the eyes becoming yellowish
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Pain in the belly or swelling

People who consume excessive alcohol are also suggested to get a bilirubin test done to check for any signs of liver damage even when symptoms are not visible.

What does the direct bilirubin serum test measure?

The bilirubin test measures the amount of bilirubin that is present in the blood taken as a sample. In a healthy person, conjugated or direct bilirubin should not be present in the blood. The traces of bilirubin that are found should be that of unconjugated bilirubin, formed when the hemoglobin breaks down to form bilirubin and is taken by the blood to the liver.

When a direct bilirubin test is prescribed by the doctor, they are looking for diseases that can cause damage to the liver or the bile ducts that help with the passage of the bilirubin to the small intestine. These diseases include:

  • Gallstones
  • Hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis

Once the results of the direct bilirubin test are received, the doctor reads the measured levels of bilirubin in the blood and compares them to the range that is considered to be normal. 

The normal amount of conjugated bilirubin level should be less than 0.3mg/dl. Ethnicity and gender play a vital role in determining the amount of conjugated bilirubin in the blood.
