Gallbladder/pancreas: Usually you start with a history and physical and many times a doctor can tell you whether or not one of these organs is affected. An ultrasound can show you gallstones or inflammation around the gallbladder. It wouldn't visualize the pancreas as well- a dedicated ct scan using pancreatic protocol would be better. You'd probably have lfts done as well as a lipase and/or amylase. ...Read more

Obesity gallstones: One of the risk factors for forming gallstones is obesity. But, just because you have a gallstone, does not mean that you need to have your gallbladder removed.

Any of these should prompt evaluation by a surgeon. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with fatty liver disease and i was wondering what drinks i can have, i know water is the best but what else can I have?
Non-alcoholic: It's your choice. I'm going to assume this is common non-alcoholic fatty liver and not a mimic such as hepatitis c or a medication allergy. Fruit juices aren't always as wholesome as one would think, especially the sugared ones. Your physician would probably like to see you stay physically fit and trim -- this is the key to management -- so grab your water bottle and hit the track. Save your life. ...Read more
