Just curious if any of you have been diagnosed with Gilbert's Syndrome. It's a fancy name for elevated levels of bilirubin in your blood. Let me know if there seems to be a link!
Thanks in advance 😁
Yes, I was diagnosed when I was a teenager...I had gone to the Dr. as there was a yellow tinge to the whites of my eyes.
I am now wondering if I had a smoldering bart infection since childhood. We had many cats and I had some bad cat bites...lots of flea bites (fleas and all biting insects LOVE me)
So, when I went on lyme treatment...my liver enzymes climbed (including the bilirubin) - so my LLND had me take a break for 2 1/2 months.
Then after that break, my liver enzymes were in range...i then went on Bartonella protocol..and my liver enzymes continued to drop and have not risen again since.
So, why after all those years of elevated bilirubin would it go down into range after bart treatment?
That is over 2 years ago now.
My GP says something like "Your bilirubin can go up and down when you have Gilberts'
BUT....it has never been in range before - until bart treatment. It's not going up and down...it went down and stayed down.
