  1. Amazing information! I have recently had a blood test and my bilirubin level was 15 but I have had nausea and anxiety problems for weeks but been well for years since my first flare up of GS and probable diagnosis so I was so surprised my levels were within the normal marker, I have had a lot of stress lately however but could the zinc be beneficial for the anxiety,I’m sure the nausea sets off the anxiety,I take a mild getabloker for ectopic beats too

    • Hi Joanne, thanks for your comment.Yes stress can elevate bilirubin levels but the key thing you need to look at is whether it is consistently elevated. 2-3 elevated readings make Gilbert’s more likely, or test for the gene. Let me know if you need more help, I do skype consults worldwide.

    • Hi Gaurav, yes it can, bilirubin is toxic to the brain in high amounts as it produces oxidative stress. Feel free to reach out if you need help managing this condition. cheers
