Question: High Direct Bilirubin and Alcohol
|rjarms - Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:53 am||
I have had HepA, nearly 1 year back
I took LFT blood test, Yesterday and
I have high direct Bilirubin and low globulin levels in blood.
Indirect Bilirubin is = 0.7
Direct Bilirubin is = 0.5
Globulin is = 1.50
What can cause this prob? Can moderate alcohol cause this? Whenever I drink beer, I feel loss of appatitie in next 1-2 days.
I drink moderately once a month, but I had quit for almost 6-7 months after HepA.
Age is 25

Liver function tests can not be interpreted in isolation. Worse still, a handful of the individual liver function tests(without laboratory reference ranges) make it even more difficult.
Kindly provide details such as, the results of all of the liver function tests and other tests(including the normal laboratory reference ranges) so that we may be able to provide a meaningful reply. You may refer to the following link for related information.
