high bilirubin

I am 37 year old healthy mail. I had LFT test and found values as below

total bilirubin 1.3mg/dl
direct bilirubin 0.2mg/dl
indrect bilirubin 1.1 mg/dl
gamma Gt 37 IU/L
SGPT ALT 36IU/L
Alkaline phosphate 56IU/L

According to laboratory total bilirubin should be maximum 1.25 and maximum direct bilirubin should be 0,15. Mine is little bit on higher side. Please advise.

Thanks

Your bilirubin values are very close to normal. Probably nothing to worry about. Real high values will cause a host of serious problems, one of which is jaundice.  You turn yellow, including your eyes.  There are many reasons but the most common is gall bladder stones blocking the ducts causing the bilirubin to enter the blood stream. My guess is at this time you have nothing to worry about.
