Hello Doctor,


What factors could be contributing to the elevated urobilinogen level in my urine, and is there cause for concern?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


1. Hemolysis and Red Blood Cells: Hemolysis, the breakdown of red blood cells, could contribute to increased urobilinogen. Investigating the possibility of hemolytic conditions is crucial.


2. Medication Influence: Certain medications may impact urobilinogen levels. A review of current medications is essential to identify potential contributors.


3. Liver and Gallbladder Concerns: Elevated urobilinogen may indicate liver or gallbladder issues, suggesting the need for a thorough evaluation of liver function and bile secretion.
