From what I've read, bilirubin is a yellowish pigment found in bile (a fluid made by the liver). Apparently, it is normal to have some bilirubin in your blood. However, normal levels are reportedly in the range of 0.3 to 1.9 mg/dL

The article below discusses various tests that are done to measure the amount of bilirubin in the blood (and what it means to have high levels of it): nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003479.htm

In some patients, different types of cancer medication (such as kadcyla) could just end up doing more harm than good. So I would probably look at it as a good thing and not get discouraged by the discontinuation of the drug. You may however want to look into other forms of cancer treatment. There are many alternative options out there that have been successfully tried for their ability to cure cancer and not just "treat" it. Some keywords that may help you research more information on cancer cures are: raw vegan diet, vitamin C injections, baking soda, frankincense, alkaline water/foods, cannabis (CBD/THC), and many more!

I hope this info helps!

A wellknown side effect of kadcyla, nothing for concern. Your oncologist will probably reduce dosage or frequency of drug's administration when count is not in range. Kadcyla in many instances can be a very effective drug which reduced toxicity profile.

Hi. I'm Ahmed. Although my bilirubin level (1.8) is more than the normal level, I'm not finding any problems in me. I feel like I'm okay but after repeated tests, still it shows that my bilirubin level is higher than normal. Please advise.
