What is biliburin, what does it start out as? how does it exit the body, how do you trace the starting compound from beginning to end, what changes take place ? Having a hard time finding any information regarding this! Help, please!

Thanks for your post.

Bilirubin is the a family of breakdown products of hemoglobin (one of the main proteins in red blood cells). The liver is the main place of bilirubin metabolism and secretion.
