I recently had some blood tests done that showed my t bili level at 1.7. All the other levels were normal except Luek Esterase which was moderate. I went to the doctor because I was experiencing periodic deep dull pain in my right abdomin, vice like headaches and over all fatigue. I had a baby 5 months ago naturally and take no medications
About 12 years ago I was tested positive for Gilberts syndrome, is this connected?
I would really appreciate any feed back as I cant afford to pay another $400 for a doctors appointment, I've just had to pay for surgery for my little baby and funds are tight.
Gilbert's Syndrome is generally thought to be a benign disorder in which the indirect bilirubin is elevated. Elevation of direct bilirubin is often liver related but elevation of indirect bilirubin is not associated with liver disease. Some people have reported a variety of side effects and one is abdominal pain. It appears as though the medical community doesn't believe Gilbert's is responsible for the reported side effects.
