Major Symptoms of Gilbert Syndrome

Gilbert syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the gastrointestinal tract. The major symptoms include abdominal pain and diarrhea, which often occur concurrently. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and a feeling of general illness or malaise. In some cases, the symptoms may be mild or absent, but they can still be a significant cause of discomfort and fatigue. The exact cause of Gilbert syndrome is not known, but it is thought to involve an abnormal immune response to a specific food or environmental agent. Treatment typically involves dietary changes, such as avoiding trigger foods, and medications to manage symptoms.
