Do you know what possible could be wrong with me and also should this be addressed nowor pushed for another 6 months. I am currently deployed to Iraq also.
Thank you for your time.
A variety of liver and gallbladder diseases can raise the bilirubin level. The best initial test would be an ultrasound, as well as blood tests looking at for hepatitis.
If negative, serially monitoring the enzymes should be done to ensure they are not rising.
If the tests remain negative, benign hereditary diseases like Gilbert's syndrome can be considered. If this is the case, normally no further treatment is needed.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I too had a very high bilirubin (6.8). I have been experiancing some stomach problem and have now been told I have IBS. My liver enzymes were normal and I had an ultrasound but that was all normal. Nothing ever came up it but I can say that I havent been myself for about 3 months.
