Hi.. Gilbert syndrome is a condition where there is deficiency glucouronyl transferase.. It is definitely a heriditary condition which follows autosomal recessive type of inheritance.. So if you have the same enzyme deficiency then it may be Gilbert syndrome.. And diet wise you need low protein, low calorie diet and avoid hepatotoxic drugs and products...
