Bilirubin

Can bilirubin levels go back up after having phototherapy?

    I've read different answers about this... some said it'd go up before down and others didn't mention it at all, so I don't have confidence enough in my knowledge to give you an answer. This sounds like something Katie or Theresa Gouldwould know though.

      Yes, they can go up but it is rare for them to go up enough to need additional treatment. Generally once they are on the way down and treatment is no longer needed then it will keep going down. I have known a few babies who have bilirubin issues for a few weeks and they go up and down.

        My son's never did but he is older now and is able to be in the sunshine. You can always ask her doctor.
