See below: Obesity, high cholesterol, hemolytic anemia, infections, and intestinal surgery are some of the causes. Stomach pain, jaundice, and pancreatitis are some of the symptoms. Treatment is usually removal of gall bladder. See this site for more info. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/tc/gallstones-topic-overview.

Yes : Ultrasound is not a perfect test. Most stones can be seen as shadows. Tiny stone are harder to see and can be called "sludge" sometimes. But just because an ultrasound doesn't show stone doesn't mean there is not a reason to have pain from gallbladder. Poor function of gallbladder (biliary dyskinesia) needs to be ruled out.

Depends symptoms: Gallstones can be present and patient asymptomatic. If have symptoms of biliary colic or abdominal pain related to foods you should consult physician. Some times diagnosis is dyskinesia with no stones producing similar symptoms due to dysmotility. Conservative therapy with adherence to gb diet may be of benefit. Diets are available on line.

A 22-year-old female asked:

What type of medication should i have for gallstones ?

Dr. Robert Uyeda

Once you: develop symptomatic gallstones, there is really no medication that can make them go away. So the best and probably only option is surgical cholecystectomy. If you are an unacceptable risk of surgery, there is a medication called Actigall, (ursodiol) but it does not work very well and has significant side effects. Consult with a surgeon for specific recommendation.
