A patient with decreased hepatic uptake of bilirubin:

    1. Increased "Indirect" bilirubin in blood
    2. Increased "Direct" bilirubin in blood
  1. A only
  2. B only
  3. Both A and B
  4. Neither A or B

Right

If bilirubin is not taken up by the liver cells, it cannot be conjugated.
Hence it remains unconjugated, bound to albumin (therefore indirect), in the blood.
