Indirect bilirubin 1.6, direct 0.3. Direct is only 0.1 above normal. Dr. Said gilbert's. Abdominal u/s normal. Gilberts?

Ever tested before?: If your previous chemical profiles have been similar, and everything else is normal, it's probably gilbert's. Otherwise, if you're on any medications, a trial of stopping them might tell. If you've gotten jaundiced during an illness when you've gone a few days without eating, think gilbert's. Trust your blood smear is normal as well / no hemolysis and no deep bruises. ...Read more

Nauseous and stomach pain after period has ended. Is it toxic shock syndrome? I accidently slept with a tampon (12 hours)

Nauseous and stomach pain after period has ended. Is it toxic shock syndrome? I accidently slept with a tampon (12 hours)

Unlikely: Toxic shock syndrome associated with tampons more likely to be caused by using a single tampon for several sequential days. Earliest symptoms are high fever 102F, pains in the abdomen or extremities and rapid progression to hypotension. If your abdominal discomfort is not severe ,you have no fever and you don't feel severely ill it is unlikely you have toxic shock syndrome. ...Read more

Total bilirubin of 8.1 mg/dl--but other liver functions normal--means? Past diagnosis of gilbert's but not this high (also have abdominal discomfort)

Total bilirubin of 8.1 mg/dl--but other liver functions normal--means? Past diagnosis of gilbert's but not this high (also have abdominal discomfort)

Direct or indirect?: If mostly indirect, are you hemolyzing? Did you perhaps get malaria? New medication? If mostly direct, do you have a common duct stone? Pancreatic cancer? Bile duct cancer?

I have gilberts syndrome.  Now my sgpt level is 167. Why?

Something else: Gilbert's doesn't do that. This may be something as simple as having gone for a long run while you're out of shape, or as worrisome as hemochromatosis, wilson's, viral hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, or a medication allergy. The most common cause of elevated liver enzymes in today's world is probably lack of exercise, but there are things to rule out first. Stay proactive and best wishes. ...Read more

Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?

Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?

Choices: Only a doctor who met and examined you can answer this. But, i recommend surgery for patients who are good candidates. Surgery is the only way to make a firm diagnosis, results are generally excellent, and though recurrences happen, they often don't. Lupron (leuprolide) can defintiely help with pain, but: no diagnosis, no fix, expensive, symptoms, and pain comes back when you discontinue. ...Read more
