Treatment of Gilbert’s Syndrome with Herbaeml Redies
Gilbert’s syndrome is a genetically inherited disease of the liver in which the liver is not able to process the bilirubin completely. Most of the cases are presented with minor complaints only and do not require treatment. But where the symptoms become worse and create a problem, medical intervention is required. Here in this article, we will be learning about Gilbert’s syndrome, its causes, signs, and symptoms, diagnosis, and management by treatment of gilbert’s syndrome offered by Planet Ayurveda.
The liver generally breaks down the RBCs into bilirubin, which is a compound that then is released in urine and stool and gives color to them. In Gilbert’s syndrome, this bilirubin is not completely broken down by the liver and starts to accumulate in the bloodstream. This results in a condition called Hyperbilirubinemia, i.e. excessive buildup of bilirubin. Hyperbilirubinemia usually gets caught in blood tests showing a high level of bilirubin in the body. High bilirubin always suggests something wrong with the liver and its functioning. In Gilbert’s syndrome liver is normal otherwise only the ability to breakdown bilirubin is hampered.
This syndrome is genetic which means it is passed through the families and a faulty gene is responsible for it. This particular gene usually codes for the production of the enzyme that enables the liver to broke the bilirubin and clear it from the bloodstream but due to fault in its liver is not able to do it, hence resulting in Hyperbilirubinemia.
Signs and Symptoms
Gilbert’s syndrome is a mild disorder and generally not causes many signs and symptoms or even can sometimes not be noticed and accidentally diagnosed. The signs and symptoms generally are seen in such patients are:
- Yellowish discoloration of the white part of eyes and skin
- Abdominal discomfort
- Weakness and fatigue
When there is jaundice in the body without any other ailments of the liver, Gilbert’s syndrome is suspected. Other than this, a high level of bilirubin in the blood for a long duration without any seemingly obvious cause points towards Gilbert’s syndrome. For ruling out any other similar conditions, some of the diagnostic tests can be suggested like a CT scan, a biopsy of the liver, ultrasound, or other blood tests. There can be other liver conditions present along with Gilbert’s syndrome.
As in most of the cases, the signs and symptoms of Gilbert’s syndrome are not so severe and can be managed at home by certain lifestyle changes like taking good sleep, avoiding strenuous exercises or long term exercises, drinking lots of water, have a balanced diet, limit alcohol intake, do yoga, and meditation. However where the treatment is required, given in an asymptomatic manner.
