  • Elevated Bilirubin experience, anyone?

    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone ever dealt with an elevated indirect bilirubin level? It doesn't seem as if 4xBEP could cause such liver damage and thankfully my CT scan yesterday showed nothing abnormal in my liver. We're still monitoring masses in my left kidney, mediastinum and thyroid bed, but nothing has grown since chemotherapy stopped this past January. Currently only taking 125 mcg of synthroid.

    1.9mg/dL was my first value this AM. I ate some food and got it retested where the value was 1.5mg/dL. Seems as if "within normal limits" peters off at 1.2mg/dL.

    Dr. Feldman at MSK was not terribly concerned about the level and mentioned Gilbert Syndrome, but as you all know, our minds wander to much more drastic means when a lab value is out of whack. Throwing this out there to the community to see if anyone has a thought.
