  • Questions
  • Due to a disruption in normal heme metabolism
    • RBC breakdown, transport, hepatic uptake, excretion


RBC -> Heme -> Unconjugatedbili

In the bloodstream:

Unconjbili binds albumin (Indirect bilirubin)

To the Liver:

Uptake, then UDP glucoronyltransferase conjugates with glucuronic acid = Direct Bilirubin (now water soluble)

From the hepatocytes to the gut in bile:

Urobilinogen in the gut either is excreted in feces (80%, ‘stercobilin’) or reabsorbed (20%, most sent back to the liver, trace amount excreted in urine, ‘urobilin’)

  • Problems with overproduction, absorption, conjugation, or excretion
  • Often presented in review books as tables of either hepatocellular, obstructive, hemolytic, or mixed
liver lab lingo
Liver Lab Lingo
  • AST/ALT: Hepatic enzymes, liver cell necrosis, AST>ALT in ETOH hepatitis
  • GGT: Intra or extrahepatic bile flow obstruction
  • Alkaline Phos: Biliary obstruction, if GGT also increased it’s hepatic cholestasis
  • Albumin: made by liver, hypo in severe dz
  • PT: Coag factors made in liver, increased coag time = severe hepatic dz
  • Ammonia: metabolized in urea cycle
  • Serum IgM, Anti-MitochondiralAb: Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
  • Anti-Smooth Muscle Ab, ANA: Autoimmune hepatitis

A 52-year-old man comes to the emergencydepartment because he has had vomiting, nausea,and abdominal pain for the past 12 hours. Hesays he attempted suicide 3 days ago by "takingeverything in the medicine cabinet." He wasstuporous for approximately 12 hours after theoverdose but felt better the following day.
