The Dangers of High Bilirubin

Bilirubin is a byproduct released by the body's red blood cells during their normal processing. When the amount of bilirubin, often called hematoidin, is too high, it results in jaundice, a yellowing of the skin. When this occurs during pregnancy, it could be a sign of liver damage or preeclampsia. Neonatal jaundice is a sign that, if not treated quickly, the jaundice could lead to:

High bilirubin is detectable in almost every case by observing signs of jaundice and treating the child properly. It is a common occurrence for which every doctor should be prepared. If your child has suffered a serious illness because your doctor failed to recognize or treat jaundice in your child, you deserve to be compensated. This is a tragedy that should have been prevented.
