Since last year I had trouble with gallstones (having attacks etc). My gallblader was full of it and was removed 5 months ago.
At that time I did some blood tests and we noticed that my Bilirubin is rising and falling, usually in the range of 2-5.6mg/dl , at one time before the operation, while I was fasting as a preparation for it, my Bilirubin got even to 9mg/dl and I was yellow as Pikachu And that's the total bilirubin count, unconjugated is always around 90% of it. For example, I am currently having a cold, and I tested my blood this morning, Unconjugated is around 4.8 mg/dl and conjugated around 0.5 mg/dl.
My local docs brushed it of as Gilberts, we didn't do any special tests, just the normal blood work and liver blood tests, and they all came back normal.
Can I do some more tests to rule out other possible illnesses because it seems that Gilberts gets diagnosed a lot when there are no other "explanations". The only symptoms I have is that I turn yellow and I feel a bit dizzy the day when I notice that I am having a episode of "Gilberts". I am worried because it seems that the "range" for Gilberts is between 1.2 to 5.3 mg/dl , and that my is slightly above it, and probably never goes down below 2.5.
Would appreciate any advice on what I could do to confirm the diagnosis , lower the bilirubin or talk to my doc and point something out., because it's driving me crazy.
Btw I am 28years old, Male, Europe.
THX! MUCH APPRECIATE!
