Young mans bilirubin was 45 then it lowered with liver drugs and when hit cut drugs it elevated? Is it gilberts syndrome?
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
There are none: Gilbert's (zheel-bear's) is a mild metabolic kink that produces slightly elevated indirect bilirubin, especially if you miss a few meals. The jaundice might be noticeable to someone with a good eye. The worst part of the "disease" is getting diagnosed and believing you are actually sick. It's extremely common, with a few % of your friends being affected. ...Read more

Can gilbert syndrome return after 6 months? I had gilbert syndrome last year in august and now I doubt I am having it again
Yes, lifetime: Gilbert's Syndrome is caused by an abnormal gene that you inherit from your parents. The gene controls an enzyme that helps break down bilirubin in your liver. G.S is a mild nonhemolytic unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia defined by bilirubin levels less than 6. Inherited disorder with decreased levels of the enzyme uridine diphosphoglucoronate glucuronosyltransferase (UDPGT) Common, mild jaundice. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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
Safe: The only danger in "gilbert's" is that someone will misunderstand / overdiagnose / overtreat. Very rarely, gilbert's people run into trouble with a few medications; your physician will be aware of this. It should be called "gilbert's non-disease". ...Read more
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.

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! ...Read more

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

Many possible causes: ... ranging from problems with the gallbladder or bile duct to liver problems to problems with metabolism.

If a diagnosis still has not been made, I would ask to see a hepatologist for more definitive testing. Good luck. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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
