What can cause a low bilirubin count?

I have a low bilirubin count.


Answer by  hibpmgirl (2166)

well high bilirubin is from your liver not processing the toxins out of your blood. a low bilirubin can be from your liver taking too much out of your blood system. The best thing to do is go to your doctors office and see what they can help you with to get your bilirubin count where it should be.

If you have lost lots of red blood cells (maybe blood bilirubin has been high), then your bone marrow is making new red cells. All your red cells are now young, and no red cell lysis is going on until the cells are old (about 120 days). Bilirubin is low.

Bilirubin is a breakdown product from the liver. An elevation of the bilirubin count indicates that your body is fighting a disease. They will however look more into other liver function tests because the bilirubin count isn't precise enough which disease you are having, it only indicates you have a liver disease.

Sorry but this answer is ridiculous! Low levels of bilirubin are generally not a concern according to webmd. Also, the 1st answer about the young blood cell count being high reducing bilirubin levels totally makes sense judging by my last lab results.  add a comment
