Flashcards in Blood bilirubin and liver protein reference values Deck (5):
1

Normal
Total serum bilirubin
Direct serum bilirubin

Total Serum Bilirubin < 17 micromolar uM

Serum Direct bilirubin < 5 uM

2

Ratio for a
direct hyperbilirubinemia
and for
indirect hyperbilirubinemia

Direct: direct / total < 0.2

Indirect: direct / total >0.4

3

Subicterus total bilirubin value
Jaundice total bilirubin value

Subicterus between 17uM and 50uM

Jaundice, above 50uM

4

Normal LDH
Normal ALP
Normal GGT
and what are these all for?

LDH: lactate dehydrogenase, found in RBCs, indicates hemolysis if it is > 160 U/L

ALP: Alkaline phosphatase indicates obstructive jaundice or bone disorder if >150 U/L

GGT: Gamma Glutamyl Trasnpeptidase: also indicates obstructive jaundice if > 60 U/L

5

Normal blood albumin and protein levels

Albumin 35-50 g/L
Protein 60-80 g/L
