Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It depends upon the underlying disorder. If its just high bilirubin (usually indirect) and ALT is normal and is not associated with fever or anemia then its most likely Gilbert syndrome,which doesn't require any treatment.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
