Gilbert's syndrome is a multifactorial hereditary disorder associated with elevated bilirubin (unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia) in blood and usually has no symptoms, although mild jaundice may appear under conditions of exertion, stress, insomnia, surgery, fasting, when there is infection or after taking certain medications such as paracetamol, since the concentration of bilirubin in the blood increases in these situations. The syndrome causes fatigue and depression.

Gilbert's syndrome is the most common hereditary cause of increased bilirubin levels. Its main feature is jaundice due to elevated levels of unconjugated bilirubin in the bloodstream (hyperbilirubinemia). The cause of this hyperbilirubinemia is the reduced activity of the enzyme UDP-glucuronyl transferase (UGT1A1). The profile examines the genetic polymorphism involved.
