Gilbert's syndrome

Gilbert’s syndrome also called ‘familial non-haemolytic jaundice’ is a benign, inherited condition characterised by abnormality in a liver enzyme which is responsible for the metabolism of bilirubin. Bilirubin is a pigment which results from the breakdown of red blood cells in the liver.

Patients suffer from a short-episode of jaundice that turns the eyes and the skin yellow; there is also abdominal pain, dizziness, weakness, irritable bowels and an inability to concentrate. Gilbert’s syndrome is usually self-limiting and treatment is not necessary. Changes in diet and lifestyle may also be made to help manage symptoms.
