Question: Na, Bilirubin High Levels

 wesman200098 - Fri Feb 02, 2007 7:57 pm

I am 24 M and I am concerned over a recent physical I had. I received my report and I had a high sodium and bilirubin level. My sodium was 145 and my bilirubin was 2.1. What does this mean? Should I be concerned? How do I reduce these levels? Below are my levels, and I included other levels to give more information if it helps:

NA 145 mmol/L
K 3.8 mmol/L
CL 105 mmol/L
CO2 24 mEq/L
Glucose 90 mg/dL
CA 9.7 mg/dL

BUN 16 mg/dL
CREAT 1 mg/dL
ALT 22 U/L
AST 16 U/L
TBilirubin 2.1 mg/dL
ALB 4.7 g/dL

Thank you. Any help would be appreciated. Hopefully I am concerned over nothing.

Also, I was required to not drink or eat anything for 12 hours before this physical. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I just wanted to tell the facts.
