How To Treat Abnormal High Or Low Levels Of Urobilinogen
Treatment for abnormal levels of urobilinogen will depend on whether they are high or low. Drinking lots of water and exercising regulary can help regulate the level.
Treating high levels of urobilinogen is especially important due to the fact that a high level could indicate liver disease. Liver disease is a serious condition which can lead to death if not treated.
If the increased level of urobilinogen in urine is caused by the destruction of red blood cells your doctor may give you iron suppliments.
Treating low levels of urobilinogen could be as simple as your doctor changing or removing your antibiotic regiment, as antibiotics can lower the amount in the urine.
If the cause of the decrease is not antibiotic intake, the low amount may be due to a disease of some kind, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis of the liver.
It is important in this case to treat the underlying cause to bring the urobilinogen levels back to normal.
