Abstract

The increments in serum concentrations of unconjugated bilirubin and free fatty acids (FFA) were measured 24 and 48h after reduction of the caloric intake (400 cal/day) in 17 patients with Gilbert's syndrome (GS) and in 12 healthy control subjects. In males, both normal and with GS, the rise in serum bilirubin was statistically higher (P
