Brief Answer: Yes it is XXXXXXX syndrome Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). You are having unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia and it appears to be Gilbert's syndrome only as indirect bilirubin is high and Liver function tests along with normal reticulocyte count and hemoglobin level. I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
