Gilbert's Syndrome: Causes, Tests and Treatment Options
The liver is one of the busiest and most important organs in your body. When it functions properly, it detoxifies harmful substances and filters impurities, stores energy, processes carbohydrates, and breaks down fats. To help you digest your food, a yellowish brown fluid in the gallbladder is discharged to break down fats and lipids in the intestines. Unfortunately, a common, mild disorder may take place causing this yellowish-brown pigment in the bile to increase in high levels. This pigment—known as bilirubin—causes the skin and whites of the eyes to turn yellow or jaundiced. A person with this kind of disorder is thought to have an inherited Gilbert’s syndrome (GS). If you or a loved one is suffering from this common disorder, there are treatment options that can help. This must-have book contains information about a wide range of treatments for Gilbert's Syndrome, from dietary changes to unconventional therapies like meditation and yoga.
