Patient Comments: Gilbert Syndrome - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with your Gilbert syndrome?

Comment from: rich, 13-18 Male (Caregiver) Published: April 15

My son has had jaundice in his eyes for six months. He also had jaundice of the skin. He had fatigue for about three months before I finally took him to the doctor. He had just started to wear contacts and I thought the change in eye color was from the contacts. He has had elevated bilirubin levels. We went to a specialist who did lots of blood tests and said that if we didn't hear from her, it is probably Gilbert Syndrome. He also has had dizzy spells after getting up and fatigue. I would just feel better if his eyes looked normal again.
