Answer

Calcium Salts

These agents bind bilirubin in the gut, enhancing bilirubin’s fecal excretion.

Calcium phosphate (Posture)

Calcium phosphate may reduce plasma bilirubin concentration in Crigler-Najjar syndrome type 1 and may be a useful adjunct to phototherapy in reducing serum bilirubin levels.
