I need my gallbladder removed but am waiting. Had another attack. Is it possible that lettuce causes the gallbladder attack?

Gallbladder: You are young to be having gallbladder attacks. It would be helpful to have blood tests and an ultrasound to assess your gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. If you truly have gallbladder disease then there's a good reason to have it removed so you don't risk future gallbladder or bile duct infection. Lettuce isn't a common food group to cause an attack, but fatty foods commonly do. ...Read more

Gallbladder (Definition)

The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct.

Can lettuce cause excess gas if you donot have a gallbladder?

Can lettuce cause excess gas if you donot have a gallbladder?

Yes: Lettuce is a food that commonly causes gas whether you have a gallbladder or not. Gallbladders store bile which helps digest fats, so people often have a harder time digesting fats after gallbladder surgery. I advise taking bile salts/fat-digesting enzymes in those without gallbladders. Having no gallbladder should not increase gas from lettuce. Carbohydrate-digesting enzymes & probiotics may help. ...Read more

What causes the gallbladder to collapse?

What causes the gallbladder to collapse?

It's empty: The gallbladder largely functions as a bag that concentrates bile made in the liver. Between meals, bile flows from the liver into the bile duct, and it is "sucked" into the gallbladder where it is concentrated between 8-20 x. When you eat, various stimuli including cck release stimulate gallbladder contaction, and the concentrated bile is then emptied into the small intestine to mix with food. ...Read more

What causes gallbladder/diahrrea problems?

What causes gallbladder/diahrrea problems?

Not sure...: ..If I understand your question. Gallbladder disease itself is not associated with bowel changes or diarrhea. If you mean diarrhea after gallbladder surgery, then that is due to excess bile reaching the large intestine or colon causing the diarrhea. That usually resolves with time as the small bowel learns to absorb the bile better, or with medication like actigall (ursodiol) to absorb the excess bile. ...Read more

If your gallbladder is not working right could it cause your bilirubin level to go up?

If your gallbladder is not working right could it cause your bilirubin level to go up?

Seldom: The stone must be in the common bile duct that leads from the liver to the gut. This will raise the conjugated bilirubin. It is a common mistake to think that a gallstone blocking the gall bladder will raise the serum bilirubin. Worth knowing is that maybe 5% of people normally run a high indirect bilirubin (gilbert's) which increased when they get hungry. Causes lots of confusion. ...Read more
