Does Gilberts Syndrome Affect Pregnancy
I have gilbert's syndrome & my wife is pregnant, is there any risk of pregnancy& baby and is there any medications must be addressed during pregnancy?
Gilbert syndrome: You needn't worry gilberts is more of a medical oddity and poses no problem.
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Do nothing: I'm going to assume this is gilbert's and that you do not also have ongoing hemolysis; your physician can tell. The best thing to do for gilbert's is nothing. Phenobarbital will lower the lab, doing you no good and making you chronically tired. A few people with a relatively more rough gilbert's allele do have some troubles; a gastroenterologist knows how to help.
No: Gilbert condition is NOT a disease and needs no treatment. Marijuana is an unpurified plant material, each batch having unknown differences from other batches, each dose having many different compounds, affecting various parts of the body in both known and unknown ways, with harmful effects to some parts of one's mind and body... and thus is not like a purified modern medicine. Never smoke things!

What to do if holding a high level of billirubin i.e 109 (gilbert syndrome) can called a patient or not.?
Not a disease: One of the first things that I explain to the entering medical students is that not everything that's different from most folks is a "disease". A few percent of folks have Gilbert's; while even a healthy person presenting for health maintenance is a "patient", that doesn't mean you're sick. Being left-handed or gay isn't a disease; many "little people", folks with birthmarks, etc like how they are
Young mans bilirubin was 45 then it lowered with liver drugs and when hit cut drugs it elevated? Is it gilberts syndrome?
Interesting.: I am not sure I understand the question or the units properly. What units for the bilirubin - what liver drugs? Please resubmit complete question as we will not be able to see this question when your new one comes through.
If a patient is transfused with hyperbilirubinated blood because the donor has gilbert syndrome, will it affect the patient?
Thank your liver: If that were to happen, it would most likely be processed just as if it was the recipient's own bolus of bilirubin, by the liver, and excreted. Should not have any significant / lasting effect unless liver function an issue.
No: Ignore it. Gilbert's is likely to flare if you miss a few meals. It's best considered a non-disease as it's extremely common and really is a non-problem. In the old days, we used to treat it with phenobarbital, which lowers the bilirubin and diminishes the yellowing of the skin at the price of making you tired and unable to work or play effectively. You don't want that.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Gilbert syndrome is a benign liver disorder and requires no treatment or specific diet.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
NO: As far as I can research SAMe is not listed as treating hyperbilerubinemia
No.: Gilbert's really doesn't cause any problems. You are just more prone to looking jaundiced, which is for the most part a cosmetic problem. But nash means that your liver is in distress, due to fat and not to alcohol. But it doesn't matter what the cause is. Your liver is not happy, and any amount of alcohol will make it worse. So even though your liver problem is not due to alcohol, don't drink.
Not typically: But I have found the ammonia levels in most commercial labs to be not that accurate. You may want to just recheck it.
Gilbert's syndrome: Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/gilberts-syndrome/ds00743 for basic info re glibert's syndrome, a collection of genetic mutations. You might be able to bring on characteristic jaundice w/fasting if your liver can't handle the bilirubin. Otherwise, there's really no harm from this very common condition.See 1 more doctor answer
What is the cause of elevated bilirubin in young man, more than 2 years? Bilirubin is 31 (norm <17)no gilbert syndrome
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.
Not likely: Gilbert's syndrome is an elevated total and indirect bilirubin unrelated to any disease and is caused by an inherited difference in bilirubin metabolism. It is usually benign although some medicine metabolism may also be affected, there is usually no need to adjust medication doses except in rare instances. It may very occasionally cause a slight yellow skin or sclera tint.
