What is GS?

Gilbert’s Syndrome is a group of symptoms caused by a dysfunction in the liver regarding the processing of bile into the bloodstream and the breakdown of toxins.

The body needs to work extra hard to ensure that the liver deals with bilirubin and extra toxins (see extracts).

Toxins are less easily dealt with by the liver and a person with Gilbert’s Syndrome may have a yellowing of the skin and eyes, fatigue, weakness and loss of appetite (amongst other symptoms).

An initial miss diagnose of Hepatitis A, B, C or E is relatively common and can add to the stress for sufferers.
