Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.
XXXXXXX syndrome is a condition in which the processing of bilirubin by the liver is affected.
Bilirubin is the breakdown product of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in blood.
This leads to increased bilirubin in blood. Increased bilirubin leads to jaundice.

But XXXXXXX syndrome is a HARMLESS condition and does NOT require any treatment.
It does not cause any serious effect in the body.

There is no need for any specific diet or medicine for it.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
As said earlier, there is no treatment required for Gilbert's Syndrome.
Stress relief method could be adopted if he has any stress.

Alcohol does not worsen it. But alcohol itself can affect liver and cause jaundice.

my son is constantly complaining of constant throat pain in his lower throat, also severe stomach pain and constant head congestion. He is also very tired all the time. He has had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy in the last few weeks. Both were normal. A couple months ago his bilirubin count was high. His doctors are seaming to give up. could you give any light on the subject.

I am a 42 year old female with no major health problems, but have not been feeling well over the last few years (since having kids). I recently had blood work done because I have been fatigued and achy and short of breath. It showed my bilirubin was slightly elevated and a positive ANA (they mentioned a slightly high RNP or something like that). A couple of years ago, by CRP levels showed up as elevated. What could this point to?
