Hi,,, Hope you will be doing great.. Gilbert syndrome is a hereditary condition. hereditary means it occurs due to a developmental defect in fetus inside the womb of the mother.

In this disease the breakdown product of hemoglobin(a pigment precent in red blood cells) which is called billirubin can't be conjugated. Conjugation is a process in which billirubin is combined with other products which makes its excretion easy and fast. In gilbert syndrome this process of conjugation is defective because necessary machinery for conjugation has found to be missing in such patient. Now bilirubin starts accumulating in the blood. But in gilbert syndrome this accumulation is not severe. It becomes severe occasionally which solves spontaneously. It seldom needs professional care. Most of the times patient don't need any kind of treatment. but lifestyle changes are necessary, eat healthy diet and control and manage stress, because stress may provoke an attack of Gilbert syndrome. Whenever you go to the doctor tell him that you have gilbert syndrome because some medication may react inversely.
