hyperbilirubinemia and bone hypoplasia

I am a 47 year old male in otherwise excellent health with Hyperbilirubinemia (2-5-3.0) due to gilbert's syndrome. I have an exceptionally small chin and jaw, obviously for my entire adult life. It seems somewhat intuitive to me that there is a relationship between chronic elevated bilirubin and bone hypoplasia, but I can't find anything in the literature to confirm this. And frankly it is kind of a pain searching for adult hyperbilirubinemia information because 90% of research and writings are done on neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, and I thought someone here would know if there is a casual relationship between hyperbilirubinemia and bone hypoplasia in adults.
