Direct Bilirubin: Direct bilirubin is a waste product produced by the body. It is the product of the breakdown of old red blood cells by the reticuloendothelial system that has travelled in the form of indirect bilirubin (fat soluble bilirubin) to the liver. In the liver indirect bilirubin is converted to direct bilirubin, a water soluble form of bilirubin. Direct bilirubin is then mixed with bile salts and other elements in the liver to form bile, which can then be excreted from the body through the gastrointestinal tract in the feces.
Conditions related to direct bilirubin production and excretion include jaundice, hyperbilirubinemia, and kernicterus.
