Gilbertís syndrome may not produce any signs or symptoms at all. If it causes the levels of bilirubin in the blood to rise significantly, the patient may develop:

  • Jaundice: A yellowish tinge to the skin and the whites of the eye
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Fatigue and weakness

None of these signs or symptoms is specific for Gilbertís syndrome. The disease may be an accidental finding when a blood test for some other disease reveals an elevated bilirubin level.

The following factors may precipitate the signs and symptoms of Gilbertís syndrome:
