Dear sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your question I would like to tell you that patients Gilbert’s Syndrome lacks the enzyme utilized for breaking down bilirubins but it seems to be fairly managed .

You can exercise like walking , swimming but low intensity exercises are preffered as compared to strenuous exercises which might aggravate the problem . Every individuals capacity is different for handling the disease so nothing can be said as blanket statement . I would advise you to XXXXXXX a fitness instructor to devise a schedule specially for you . You bilirubin is fairly OK so you can start with your exercise routine.

But try not to overtrain and exercise as your body allows.

Take care.
