Management of conjugated hyperbilirubinemia
When conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is detected, different tests are performed to find out the cause. The diagnoses mentioned above are only an example, but there are many others to consider. Thus, depending on the case, the doctor may order new bilirubin tests, urine bilirubin tests, a complete blood count, AST and ALT measurements, serologic studies, albumin levels in the blood, and sometimes imaging studies that include an ultrasound, a CT scan or a magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography.
The treatment depends on the diagnosis. For example, cholelithiasis is usually treated with surgery, and pancreatic cancer is treated with chemoradiation and surgery. It is essential to have medical treatment for this condition. It is not something you can solve at home with remedies and natural medicine. Thus, if you have jaundice or suspect that you have bilirubin or liver problems, talk to your doctor as soon as possible to find out what is happening and how to solve the problem.
