Dr. Michael Murray answered:

Can antibiotics help with gallbladder disease?

Temporarily

Antibiotics
Most times gallbladder problems arise from gallstones which obstruct the outlet of the gallbladder causing pain and inflammation. This inflammation can become infected. When it does antibiotics will help but ultimately it will not get better untill the gallbladder is surgically removed

Can you die from gallbladder disease?

Very rare.

Gallbladder_diseases
Gallstones can cause infection which could result in septic shock. Usually that could be treated with antibiotics and surgery. Cancer of the gallbladder or bile ducts is very rare. Symptomatic gallbladder disease requires attention.

Dr. Kevin R. Hiler answered:

Can my child get gallbladder disease?

Yes but not likely

Routine gallstones are very uncommon. Typically stones in kids are related to hemolytic diseases such as sickle cell. There are case reports of parasites. Mostly biliary disease is secondary to abnormal development such as atresia, choledochal cysts, pancreatic anomalies. Again these are uncommon.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

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. Joseph A. Kuhn answered:

How to help the symptoms of gallbladder disease?

Avoid fats, or OR

Fatty foods often trigger the gallbladder to contract and makes the symptoms worse. 95% of patients who are actively havIng gallbladder pain will continue to have problems until the gallbladder is removed. So, you might consider OR.

Dr. John Rimmer answered:

Can bacterial infection cause gallbladder disease?

Gallstones

Gallstones are formed in the gallbladder and may not cause symptoms . Gallstones in the gallbladder are associated with bacteria in the bile and if the bile in the gallbladder gets infected it causes cholecystitis which makes you very unwell and requires surgery to remove the gallbladder

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Can gallbladder disease cause liver tests to go up?

Yes

Open-uri20120511-8488-1ejkici
Liver function tests include AST, ALT, Alkaline Phosphotase (AlkP), and Bilirubin.Acute inflammation of the gallbladder can secondarily inflame the liver, typically causing a elevation of AST and ALT.A stone in the COMMON BILE DUCT (CBD) may block the liver and lead to abnormalities of all these labs. If a stone is in the CBD, endoscopic removal (ERCP) is usually necessary, in addition to chole-x.
