Pregnancy (Definition)

I have gilbert syndrome my bl is8.5 what you suggest for me?

I have gilbert syndrome my bl is8.5 what you suggest for me?

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. ...Read more

What to do if holding a high level of billirubin i.e 109 (gilbert syndrome) can called a patient or not.?

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 ...Read more

?

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. ...Read more

I have gilbert syndrome with nash. Is it advisable to take a drink a day.

I have gilbert syndrome with nash. Is it advisable  to take a drink a day.

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. ...Read more

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.

What is gilbert syndrome and do I have to take some sort of precaution with my diet? What causes this syndrome?

What is gilbert syndrome and do I have to take some sort of precaution with my diet? What causes this syndrome?

No worries: Gilbert's syndrome is a benign liver condition causing a mild elevation in your bilirubin level on lab testing. Sometimes when you become ill the bilirubin can get high enough to get you a little jaudiced (yellow skin/eyes) this will resolve after the illness passes and is no indication of liver damage. There are no dietary precautions to take with this condition. ...Read more
