If i was born jaundice and seem to have gilbert systems could this be related? All results are normal.

Gilbert's syndrome: It is not uncommon for babies without gilbert's syndrome to be born with temporary jaundice that is not harmful as it clears as soon as the liver function becomes more efficient. Gilbert's syndrome usually manifests it self a little later in life and is also harmless. I don't know if your jaundice at birth was the former or the latter, but either way you should be fine. ...Read more

If you do have liver issues as evidenced by elevated liver enzymes, this needs to be worked up, itchiness or no, as this warns of several deadly but treatable diseases. ...Read more
