Total bilirubine too high
Hello

I was an acute hepatitis B patient. After taking lamivudine 100mg treatment about 30 months, it has recovered and developped Anti-HBs (40 UI/l, blood test 21th February 2009) but still, total bilirubine was as followed:

1st  Total bilirubine  : 49,0 μmol/l (N: < 17,1) (15 Dec 2008)
2nd Total bilirubine   : 42,2 μmol/l (N: < 17,1) (17th Jan 2009)
3rd Total bilirubine   : 32,9 μmol/l (N: < 17,1) (17th Oct 2009)

Could you please answer my questions?
1- Why total bilirubine still high? What is the cause?
2- May you advice me about dietary food to get rid of hyper bilirubinemia?

I stopped using lamivudine 100mg after recovery. In my country, the doctor who is specialized in hepato-gastro-Enterology are still not available.

yours.

It's good to be Anti-HBs positive.  But you should make sure you are HBsAg negative to confirm that you did indeed recover from acute HepB.

As for your high bilirubin, there could be numerous causes.  It could be from increase bilirubin poduction, other problem with liver, blockage of the bile ducts, etc.  You need to investigate with a doctor.

As for diet, try to eat plain food, minimize spice / seasoning, and water.
