Dr. P. Jyoti :

well there can be a number of causes for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the first in your case would be gall stones, which is why they did the ultrasound

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but there can be many other causes as well

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hepatitis, including hepatitis B and C

Dr. P. Jyoti :

liver tumors

Dr. P. Jyoti :

pancreatitis

Dr. P. Jyoti :

blood disorders

Dr. P. Jyoti :

can all lead to high bilirubin

Customer:

The scan lady said there was no gall stones

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you need to ask your doctor a number of important questions

Dr. P. Jyoti :

thats right, i got that

Customer:

Which questions

Dr. P. Jyoti :

since that is ruled out, you have to ask about the other possible causes

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you have to ask about the possible causes

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i will note the most important conditions that you need to discuss with your doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

please note them down and discuss

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i see you are typing i will wait for your message

Okay, just feels like this has been going on for ages and still not closer to any results and the pain is terrible and its ruining my quailty of life

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i understand

Dr. P. Jyoti :

sorry to hear about this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

a number of conditions are implicated in this and need to be ruled out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

discuss with your doctors so that you know about their progress

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the things to ask your doctor are:

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hemolysis or increased breakdown in blood cells - this can cause increase in bilirubin

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Glibert's syndrome - a genetic condition which can cause hyperbilirbinemia

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Rotor syndrome - another genetic condition

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hepatitis A,B and C

Dr. P. Jyoti :

biliary stricture

Dr. P. Jyoti :

all these causes can lead to such increased bilirubin

Dr. P. Jyoti :

one possible cause in your case is Gilbert syndrome

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is a benign genetic cause in upto 5% of the population in which the bliribubin is raised

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it is relatively benign

Dr. P. Jyoti :

discuss all these conditions with your doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will lead to a more informed discussion and help you find a solution
