Elevated total bilirubin

I recently had blood work done through occ health at work.  I had finished antibiotics for a bladder infection a week prior and ended up having the stomach flu later that day.  My blood work came back and my total bilirubin was 1.8 and all of my other lads were normal.  Should I be concerned?

no, I would not be concerned.  upon repeating, i am confident it would be normal.  10% of the general population have gilbert's disease which is a benign enzyme defect in the liver that can cause an isolated elevated bilirubin level.
