Blood work done 5 years ago, my reticulyte count was at 0.6 on a scale of 0.5-1.5. Everything else was normal including LDH, rbc, hemoglobin and haptoglobin. I have been told i have gilberts bc my indirect bilirubin is elevated when fasting. Normal?

In brief: Sounds like Gilbert

It is very common and a non-problem. Gilbert folks who fast for a day or two get a little deeper jaundice that you can see looking at the whites of the eyes in direct sunlight.
Stop worrying m, think about trying this and best wishes.
