Hi, Have just been diagnosed with Gilberts Syndrome, but would let you all know that elevated bilirubin is also associated with B12 deficiency and can have same symptoms. If you are having blood test ask for a B12 level test which should range from around 400 to 1000 as normal. Also with the blood test your MCV level should be monitored as if this is also elevated another sign of B12 def. Check out website for Pernicious Aneamia Society for more info.
I have been experiencing the fatigue, dizzy spells, brain fog, confusion, bowel probs ect and again was told theres nothing to worry about!! right!! I am awaiting some further blood results to rule out for sure B12 def as although my B12 was not considered tooooo low at 358 apparently a further test can be done to see if at cell level B12 is being absorbed. Anyway thought the B12 thing was worth mentioning as linked to bilirubin levels......will update you when I find out results..
