    Elevated Bilirubin Levels Help!

    Hi,
    I am a 25 yr old male. I was diagnosed with Hepatitis A 3 weeks back. My liver function test showed the follwing:
    Bilirubin= 14 mg/dl ; SGPT= 2822; SGOT = 320
    The doctor prescribed me Hepamerz and Ursodiol which I continued taking for 2 weeks.
    I repeated the Liver function tests last week and to my surprise the Bilirubin levels shot up to 24 mg/dl. But SGPT was lowered 108 and SGOT was lowered to 55.
    The doctor said that the elevated bilirubin is not a cause for concern, and the lowered SGPT,SGOT values indicate that the liver is on a healing process.He advised me to continue on medications along with rest and dietary restrictions.
    Is there a way to lower bilirubin count in faster manner?
