In an older child or adult, normal values of directbilirubin are from 0–0.4 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Normal values of total bilirubin are from 0.3–1.0 mg/dL. The indirect bilirubin level in the bloodstream is the total bilirubin minus the directbilirubin levels in the bloodstream

Lower than normal bilirubin levels are usually not a concern. Elevated levels may indicate liver damage or disease. Higher than normal levels of direct bilirubin inyour blood may indicate your liver isn’t clearing bilirubin properly. Elevated levelsof indirect bilirubin may indicate other problems
