Re: Bilirubin Count?!

I found out in 2007 that I have Gilberts syndrome. my bili level was 42 and was told about GS but also that I was fine and it doesnt affect your life in any way. Unfortunately I was told this when my HA first kicked off and obviously I didnt feel fine. They told me to go back and get my bili levels checked and they were at 35 (normal range 2-17). Anyway I ended up in hospital with jaundice and upper right abdo pain and had bili levels of 88. Ultrasound on liver/gallbladder clear and as a precaution had my DNA tested to confirm GS which gives all these symptoms but is no danger to you.

Gilberts syndrome is something you are born with and will always have but I'd had loads of blood tests in the past and this was the first time I'd ever had raised bili levels (probably due to stress!!)

Anyway you will be fine and at least your ultrasound will put your mind at rest.
