Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A bilirubin test is a simple test that doctors order to help find the cause of health conditions like jaundice, anemia, and liver disease. It uses a special light to measure how much bilirubin is in your blood. Bilirubin is a yellow substance that is made by the liver when you break down food.

A bilirubin test aims to find the cause of health conditions like jaundice, anemia, and liver disease.

A bilirubin test is typically recommended if you have symptoms like an increase in yellowing of the skin and eyes, nausea and vomiting, or a decrease in red blood cells.

There are many reasons why a bilirubin blood test might be ordered. Jaundice is the most common reason, but it can also be caused by anemia, liver disease, and other health conditions. A bilirubin blood test can help to find the cause of the health condition and decide if treatment is necessary.

The bilirubin test results can provide important information about your health. For example, if your bilirubin level is high, it might mean that you have jaundice. Jaundice is a condition in which the yellow color of your skin and eyes comes from the extra bilirubin in your blood. Jaundice can lead to problems with your vision, and it can make you feel sick. If you have anemia, your bilirubin level might be high because your body doesn’t have enough red blood cells. Anemia can make you tired, lightheaded, and easily injured.

You will not need to do anything to prepare for the bilirubin test. Just make sure to drink plenty of fluids before and after the test.

High levels of bilirubin may indicate that your liver is not working properly. High Bilirubin Levels can also be due to particular diets, exercises, or drugs. Red blood cell breakdown also produces bilirubin, therefore an elevated level may indicate a problem with the red blood cells rather than liver disease.

You might just have jaundice, which is yellowish skin and eyes, with relatively high bilirubin levels. The primary symptom of elevated bilirubin levels is jaundice.

Other Symptoms of High Bilirubin Levels are

Queries about this test

#1 Bilirubin test means in hindi

Ans: बिलीरुबिन टेस्ट एक साधारण ब्लड टेस्ट है जो आपके शरीर में बिलीरुबिन के स्तर को मापता है। बिलीरुबिन तब बनता है जब लाल ब्लड कोशिकाएं टूट जाती हैं, और यह हमारे शरीर के ठीक से काम करने के लिए आवश्यक है। हालांकि, बिलीरुबिन का उच्च स्तर अंतर्निहित स्वास्थ्य समस्याओं का संकेत कर सकता है।

#2 Bilirubin test means

Ans: The bilirubin test is a blood test that measures the levels of bilirubin in the body. Bilirubin is a yellowish substance produced when red blood cells break down. The liver then processes and removes it from the body through urine or stool.

#3 Bilirubin test procedure

Ans: During the procedure, a Max Lab healthcare professional will clean your skin with an antiseptic solution and tie an elastic band around your upper arm to make your veins more visible. They will then use a needle to draw blood from one of the veins in your arm into a tube or vial.

#4 Bilirubin test in newborn

Ans: Bilirubin tests are commonly performed on newborn babies to detect any potential issues with jaundice. Jaundice is a condition where the skin and eyes turn yellow due to high levels of bilirubin in the blood. This can be a common occurrence in newborns as their livers aren't fully matured yet.

#5 Bilirubin test in adults

Ans: Although the bilirubin test is more commonly performed on newborns due to their high risk of developing jaundice, adults can also benefit from this test. If you are experiencing symptoms of liver disease or have a family history of liver problems, talk to your doctor about getting a bilirubin test done.
