Total bilirubin is a compound produced during the breakdown of red blood cells in the body. It is transported through the bloodstream to the liver, where it undergoes further processing and is eventually excreted from the body through bile. Bilirubin plays a crucial role in the metabolism of heme, a component of hemoglobin found in red blood cells.

Elevated levels of total bilirubin in the blood may indicate liver dysfunction, bile duct obstruction, or excessive breakdown of red blood cells, which can occur due to various conditions such as liver disease, hepatitis, gallstones, or hemolytic anemia.
