Understanding Bilirubin Total in Bhubaneshwar


What is Bilirubin Total in Bhubaneshwar?

Bilirubin Total is a blood test, often done as part of a Liver function test (LFT) measures the total amount of bilirubin, a byproduct of old or damaged red blood cells. This test is available at an affordable price in Bhubaneshwar with Tata 1mg labs. It helps assess liver function and diagnose conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, or hemolytic anemia. Elevated levels of bilirubin can cause jaundice, giving a yellowish tint to the skin and eyes. 

Your doctor may suggest Bilirubin Total if you exhibit symptoms of liver dysfunction, such as fatigue, abdominal pain, or yellowing of the skin and eyes. It is also done in newborns to assess the risk of neonatal jaundice. No fasting is required for this test. You may eat and drink as per your daily routine, although it's important to inform your doctor of any medications or supplements you are taking, as they might affect the test results.

 

What does Bilirubin Total measure?

A Bilirubin Total examination quantifies the levels of total bilirubin in the body, encompassing both indirect (unconjugated) and direct (conjugated) bilirubin. Bilirubin, a yellowish waste substance, is primarily generated during the breakdown of aging red blood cells (RBCs) in the body. After their typical lifespan of 120 days, RBCs disintegrate in the liver, leading to the production of a substantial amount of bilirubin. It is crucial for this bilirubin to be eliminated from the body.
