Table 6 Logistic regression analysis revealed that fasting more than 12 hours, adoption of low calories weight losing plans, pregnancy, intensive sports, surgery including Caesarian delivery and severe systemic infections were risk factors for clinical jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia in subjects with Gilbert syndrome
