When conjugated bilirubin (CB) is less dan, 30% of total bilirubin----> increased the production of unconjugated bilirubin or decreased uptake. Hemolysis is the possible answer choice.

CB is 30%-50% mix-hyperbilirubinemia (Ex. Hepatitis or Alcholol) CB is more than 50% --> Obstruction (intra or extrahepatic)
