Hyperbilirubinemia | How to Reduce Bilirubin Level in Your Body?

Impaired bilirubin uptake

When hepatic blood flow is compromised, the rate of bilirubin conversion decreases, and the liver can’t keep up with the amount of bilirubin formed day by day. In some cases, the problem is that hepatocytes become inefficient in receiving bilirubin, which is often triggered by drugs such as rifampicin and novobiocin. Contrast administration to perform certain imaging studies may also impair the uptake of bilirubin momentarily by the liver and cause unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia and jaundice.
