A high level of bill rubin, is it dangerous ?

My total BILIRUBIN  3.50 mg/dl. Could you please tell me sir, whether I have serious Lever health problem or not.

I am 26 years old, Bilirubin keep on increasing in my body.
8 years back, my bilirubin was 2.5mg/dl .
3 years back, bilirubin was  2.9 mg/DL .
Now it is 3.50 mg/dl.

Recently I did Liver function Test, looks like other tests numbers are in  normal  range except  Bilirubin.

Total Bilirubin    3.5 mg/dl ( Direct Bilirubin 0.95 mg/dl , and Indirect bilirubin 2.55 mg/dl )
Total Protein 7.8 g/dl
Albumin       4.6 g/dl
Globulin      3.2 g/dl

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Persistently elevated indirect bilirubin could be due to blood disorders or congenital liver disorders. Hemolysis (increased destruction of red blood cells) can increased indirect bilirubin. Congenital non-hemolytichyperbilirubineamia-Gilbert’s Syndrome and Rotor’s syndrome can cause increased indirect bilirubin. The cause for the raised levels needs to be determined. This is done with the help of blood tests, ultra sonogram and if need be, biopsy of liver will help to clinch the diagnosis.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
