My partner has Gilbert’s syndrome, diagnosed after on and off high bilirubin levels and cholesterol. Also an ultrasound of the liver. He generally has no symptoms except itchy skin. I’ve read he should not fast so we quit intermittent fasting. The doctor said it’s a good syndrome to have.

Yellowing of the eyes, brain fog and fatigue; and also restless but not sure if that's associated with my bilirubin levels.

Itchy skin was the only symptom of my high bilirubin levels.

Bloated stomach, pressure and mild pain on the right side at the bottom of the rib cage are my symptoms of high bilirubin levels. Sitting is uncomfortable. I feel best in the morning after lying down all night. Appetite is normal, bowel movements are normal, and urine is normal.
