Bilirubin is a yellow pigment present along with the blood. It is synthesized by the catabolism of red blood cells. . Bilirubin levels in the blood help to test jaundice, liver diseases, and anemia. Altered levels of bilirubin(direct and indirect)in the blood help to diagnose conditions such as JAUNDICE, liver diseases (obstructive and non-obstructive jaundice), infections such as malaria leading to anemia, etc. Bilirubin testing or evaluation of bilirubin is preferred when affected by conditions such as liver disorders, hemolytic anemia, congenital conditions, and jaundice in newborns (physiological), etc.


The causes can be divided into pre-hepatic (hemolytic anaemia) or certain drugs, hepatic (alcoholic fatty liver and hepatitis), and post-hepatic issues (bile duct obstruction, gall stones, and pancreatitis) also types of bilirubin can be conjugated form or unconjugated form of bilirubin. This test is usually done for ‘JAUNDICE’ (yellow colouration of eyes and skin) in newborn and liver-related diseases, infectious diseases like malaria (excess RBC breakdown), hepatitis and liver diseases in alcoholics, etc., and other related pathologies.  This test is suggested in patients with symptoms such as swelling causing enlarged abdomen, chills, fever, chest pain, weakness, lightheadedness, fatigue, and nausea, etc. Other associated tests include the Vandenberg test for direct or conjugated bilirubin, indirect or unconjugated bilirubin by kit method, colourimetric method, and spectrometric methods, etc.
