Hello and thanks for the query
In Gilbert Syndrome, nothing has to be done because it does not cause any symptoms. If you have diagnosed need not to be worry. Keep a check on Bilirubin level and consult your doctor id you have any symptoms like pain abdomen, indigestion, yellow coloration of eye and nails. You can take certain precautions and note if it works or not:
1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Avoid all kind of fatty, oily and spicy food. Take baked food as much as you can.
3. Reduce your weight if you are overweight.
4. Do regular exercise and keep yourself active.
5. Take some Liver tonic like Liv 52.
You are seen by a good doctor so keep in touch of him and follow the advices.
Best Wishes and have a healthy life.
