Diabetes and bilirubin
what is the relationship between diabetes and a high level of bilirubin?
I am not aware of a relationship between diabetes and level of bilirubin in adults and children. There is a concern about increased risk for hyperbilirubinemia in newborns born to mothers with diabetes during pregnancy.
