Preparing for your appointment

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Here are some questions that might help facilitate a discussion with your doctor:

  • Is my bilirubin level significantly elevated?
  • Should I have my bilirubin level tested again?
  • I've been experiencing some unexplained symptoms. Could these be caused by Gilbert's syndrome?
  • Would you review the medications I'm taking for other conditions to make sure they're compatible with Gilbert's syndrome?
  • Do I need treatment for Gilbert's syndrome?
  • Can Gilbert's syndrome cause complications or lead to liver damage?
  • Is there anything I can do to maintain a low bilirubin level?
  • Is jaundice harmful?
  • What is the likelihood that my children or other relatives also have Gilbert's syndrome?
