What is TBIL on a blood test?

Bilirubin is a breakdown product of heme (a part of haemoglobin in red blood cells). The liver is responsible for clearing the blood of bilirubin. It does this by the following mechanism: bilirubin is taken up into hepatocytes, conjugated (modified to make it water-soluble), and secreted into the bile, which is excreted into the intestine. Increased total bilirubin causes jaundice, and can signal a number of problems: 1. Prehepatic: Increased bilirubin production. This can be due to a number of causes, including hemolytic anemias and internal hemorrhage. 2. Hepatic: Problems with the liver, which are reflected as deficiencies in bilirubin metabolism (e.g. reduced hepatocyte uptake, impaired conjugation of bilirubin, and reduced hepatocyte secretion of bilirubin). Some examples would be cirrhosis and viral hepatitis. 3. Posthepatic: Obstruction of the bile ducts, reflected as deficiencies in bilirubin excretion. (Obstruction can be located either within the liver or in the bile duct.)

What is bilirubin 9 mean?

A total bilirubin of 9 is fine. Some hospitals state it should be under 12, some state it should be under 17. Bilirubin blood test levels are one of those things where "lower is better". (Bilirubin is a byproduct which you liver is supposed to excrete in bile, which is then excreted via your digestive system. If your liver is not excreting bilirubin in bile, your blood bilirubin level increases, showing that your liver isn't quite right.)
