  • Bilirubin

    Order Test Online

     

    Bilirubin is a yellow pigment that is present in our blood and stool. When the haemoglobin in the old red blood cells break they create more bilirubin. This then circulates in the blood and through blood stream bilirubin travels to the liver. Further, the liver mixes it into the bile and excretes it into the bile ducts. When the bile is released into the small intestine to speed up the digestion of fats and eventually the bilirubin is excreted through the stool.

    Bilirubin attached by the liver to glucuronic acid is called the direct or conjugated bilirubin. Bilirubin not attached to the liver to the glucuronic acid is called an indirect bilirubin or unconjugated bilirubin and all the bilirubin found in the blood is called total bilirubin.
