Many possible causes: ... ranging from problems with the gallbladder or bile duct to liver problems to problems with metabolism. If you know that Gilbert syndrome is not present, you must have seen a physician about this in the past. If a diagnosis still has not been made, I would ask to see a hepatologist for more definitive testing. Good luck.
