In brief: Gilbert's disease
Gilbert's disease is an inborn error of metabolism resulting in an increase in unconjugated bilirubin in the blood stream. It does not cause any symptoms other than occasional jaundice, usually only when there is an underlying infection or some other form of stress.
Bonus: people with Gilbert's often have low risk of heart disease. Hope that helps.

In brief: Liver enzyme issue
Gilbert syndrome is typically a harmless mild genetic condition in which the liver doesn't properly process a substance called bilirubin.
Often discovered by accident when a blood test shows elevated bilirubin levels.

Agree with Dr. Somani, however some with Gilbert's disease have problems detoxifying drugs which are normally deactivated by the liver.
