    Hi guys,

    So along with a bunch of other test results I found that I have high Bilirubin

    2.1 H (Reference Range: 0.2-1.2 mg/dl)

    I know this is related to liver functioning. Anybody know about this or have a similar result?

    Thanks

    Elevated unconjugated/indirect billirubin only is gilbert's syndrome I believe. So glucoronidation insufficiency.
    If both conjugated/indirect and unconjugrated/direct are elevated apparently (according to my doctor as I have this) this means likely glucoronidation overloaded.

    I could be wrong on some of this tho ! :D Someone else might be able to clarify.

    This is really common amongst ME/CFS patients, I wonder why it hasn't gotten more attention.. I seem to remember a figure as high as 40-50% of patients at one stage.
