Gilbert's disease

Overview

Gilbert’s disease impacts the way bilirubin, a substance with a yellowish pigment made by the liver, is processed. When bilirubin is not processed properly, it causes jaundice (a yellowing of the skin and eyes).

Symptoms

Common symptoms of Gilbert’s disease are fatigue and mild jaundice. These symptoms most often appear during times of exertion, stress, infection or when the individual does not eat. The jaundice may come and go throughout life, but does not cause health problems.
