Hyperbilirubinemia type 1

Common Name(s)

Hyperbilirubinemia type 1, Gilbert's syndrome

Gilbert syndrome is a common, mild liver disorder in which the liver doesn't properly process bilirubin, a substance produced by the breakdown of red blood cells. Gilbert syndrome typically doesn't require treatment or pose serious complications. In fact, Gilbert syndrome is usually not considered a disease because of its benign nature. Many individuals find out they have the disorder by accident, when they have a blood test that shows elevated bilirubin levels. More males than females have been diagnosed with Gilbert syndrome.  This condition is caused by mutations in the UGT1A1 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern.
