Can my bad diet lead to gallbladder disease?

Yes.: Gallbladder disease occurs due to multiple factors including heredity and our high (saturated) fat/high carbohydrate western diet. Furthermore, once gallstones develop, symptoms tend to be worse after eating high-fat foods.
Dr. Loki Skylizard
Thoracic Surgery 20 years experience
Yes: I agree with dr. Rosen. Gallbladder disease is often multi-factoral. There are clear relationships between diet and gallbladder disease. In addition to poor dietary choices, things including yo-yo dieting with significant weight swings is associated with increased stone formation. Certain illnesses are also associated with development of gallstones.
