Indirect Bilirubin: Indirect bilirubin is a type of bilirubin and a waste product produced by the body. It is the product of the breakdown of old red blood cells by the reticuloendothelial system. Indirect bilirubin is fat soluble and must travel through the bloodstream to the liver to be converted into a water soluble form in order to be excreted from the body in feces and urine. The water soluble form of bilirubin is called direct bilirubin and is mixed with bile salts and other elements in the liver to form bile.
Conditions related to indirect bilirubin production and excretion include jaundice, hyperbilirubinemia, and kernicterus.
