What Is Bile
Yes, if treated.: Bile is secreted from the liver and stored in the gallbladder. After a meal the gallbladder contracts and the bile enters the small intestine where it emulsifies fat ands aids fat digestion. The bile is reabsorbed in the terminal ileum. Surgical removal of the terminal ileum causes bile to enter the colon causing diarrhea. It can also lead to bile acid deficiency and fat malabsorption>steatorrhea ...Read more

We worry when these increase 2x, 3x, 4x etc. Bile acid (bilirubin) can increase in a newborn and cause jaundice, which is temporary and treatable. In adults, an elevate bili can be ominous possible heralding hepatitis, disease, or ...Read more
Dig. aid, u shouldn': Bile is a digrestive detergent that emulsifies fats; is made in liver, stored in gallbladder, travels down ducts, put into small bowel in duodenum, just past the stomach-in the duodenum. It should head south, i.e. Down intestine. Can reflux up into stomach; uncommonly can also reflux up into lower esophagus; even less common into throat. More likely acid/stomach reflux. Chronic?- see doc. ...Read more
Probably not: Bile produced in the liver is excreted via the common bile duct through the papilla of Vater. It should flow ante grade into the small bowel. If it flows retrograde into the stomach, it is termed biliary gastric reflux. It was thought that this could be a cause of gastritis. However, this phenomenon is commonly observed on nuclear hepatobiliary scans in patients without gastritis by endoscopy. ...Read more

Chemical properties: Biliverdin is a green tetrapyrrolic bile pigment, and is a product of heme/redcell breadown. Biliverdin is further broken down to bilirubin for easier excretion to the outside world (also into urobilinogen in urine-as mild yellow). This compound absorbs green light, thus appears green to your eyes! (put in dard room=brown/black). I think u maybe asking why u threw up green? Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Bile: Bile is manufactured in the liver and then stored in the gall bladder where it is secreted into the upper intestinal tract after a fatty meal. The meal releases a hormone, cholecystokinin, which stimulates gall bladder contraction thereby secreting the bile. When the gall bladder has been removed, the liver can release Bile through the biliary ducts directly into the digestive tract. ...Read more
No food will : Make stones go away. But if you eat fatty or fried foods, you will have pain. This is because the gallbladder will contract vigorously. And the stones will get stuck in the neck of the gallbladder. This causes biliary colic, it is painful. If the stone remains stuck and gallbladder gets infected, you will have acute cholecystitis.
