An excess of bilirubin in blood can produce jaundice, is a yellowish discoloration of skin, tissues and sclerae <the whites of eyes> is caused by high levels in blood of the chemical bilirubin. It results from an increased amount of bilirubin, a reddish-yellow pigment in blood, when bilirubin level is mildly elevated, they are yellowish and they tend to be brown when bilirubin level is high.
Bilirubin is formed by the breakdown of haemoglobin, a pigment in red blood cells. The liver removes bilirubin from the blood stream and discharges it in the bile. The chemical that remains in the blood after the iron is removed becomes bilirubin. Thus, jaundice results from either excessive production of bilirubin or reduced discharge of bile. Jaundice is not a disease but a symptom of various diseases.
Hemolytic jaundice results from an increased breakdown of red blood cells, which causes a greater concentration of bilirubin in the blood. Hepatocellular jaundice occurs when the liver is diseased, as in hepatitis, so that it cannot secrete enough bile. Bilirubin collects in the body, resulting jaundice.
Obstructive jaundice is caused by the blocking of the bile ducts. Gallstones may also cause such a blockage. Many babies are born with physiologic jaundice, which occurs if the body cannot process all the bilirubin it produces. In most cases, it disappears within two weeks after birth.
Bile a fluid secreted by liver helps the body digest and absorb fatty foods. It also rids the body of certain waste products. The liver secretes bile continuously, producing about 1 litre per day. Bile flows from the liver into a tube called the hepatic duct. It connects with the common bile duct, which leads to the small intestine. Except after meal most of the bile does not proceed directly to intestine. Rather, it enters in gall bladder, a pouch attached to the common bile duct. There, bile is stored and concentrated until needed. It contains various waste products that eventually become part of the faeces (solid body wastes). One of these waste products, bilirubin, is formed from breakdown of red blood cells. Bilirubin gives bile its colour, which ranges from brown to greenish-yellow. Other waste matter in the bile includes excess cholesterol and certain poisons that the liver removes from the bloodstream.
