The level of total bilirubin is often further increased if the blood sample is taken after fasting for two days, [27] and a fast can, therefore, be useful diagnostically.

Many drugs gilbedt metabolized or biotransformed by various enzymes, including glucuronyl transferase, in the liver. For example, Gilbert’s syndrome is associated with severe diarrhea and neutropenia in patients who are treated with irinotecanwhich is metabolized by UGT1A1.

Liver and biliary tract disease. While Gilbert’s syndrome is considered harmless, it is clinically important because it may give rise to a concern about a blood or liver condition, which could be more dangerous.
