    Bilirubin is the yellow brownish substance that is produced when the liver breaks down or takes apart old red blood cells

    # Begin with abstaining from alcohol and tobacco consumption. Alcohol tends to raise bilirubin in a person's body

    # the cause of the high bilirubin is due to gallstones or liver problems such as cirrhosis, in which case surgery may be required to correct the bilirubin problem.

    # jaundice and high bilirubin symptoms can be caused by an iron deficiency. Possible dietary changes or iron supplements may help lower bilirubin levels.

    Bilirubin,is a breakdown product of the heme containing proteins in the body.Serum and urine bilirubin are very common laboratory test used as a component of liver function test.

    Bilirubin is found in the body,in two forms - conjugated[direct] and unconjugated[indirect] bilirubin.

    Conjugated bilirubin,is that bilirubin that is water soluble thus excreted by the kidney.

    Unconjugated bilirubin, is water insoluble,and remains bound with albumin in the blood.

    Normal total serum bilirubin concentration is less than 1mg/dl.

    In addition to some of the other suggestions, one of the therapies medical professionals use for jaundice in both children and adults is exposure to full spectrum lighting, or sunlight.
