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

Are there any cures for gilberts disease/syndrome; mainly the yellowing of the eyes?

Are there any cures for gilberts disease/syndrome; mainly the yellowing of the eyes?

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

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

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

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
