The level of jaundice is usually related to the concentration of serum bilirubin. The normal reference range being around 0.18 to 1.17 mg/dL.
The first clinical sign of jaundice is itching, icterus and yellow discoloration first noticed in the sclera will start to become apparent when the serum bilirubin levels reach around 2.34 to 2.92 mg/dL.
Note that different countries will use different units of measurements and different units will quote slightly different reference ranges also.
