Did anyone tried to create bile (about 30 times concentrated, like produced by the gall bladder)for people who had their gallbladder removed.?
The liver (still): The gallbladder does not make bile, it merely stores it. Bile is made by the liver and used by the intestinal tract to break down and absorb fat.

Most people without a gallbladder manage to absorb fats without difficulty; those that don't will have unabsorbed fat, leading to diarrhea. ...Read more

Taking medicine to dissolve gall stone, will it create blockage in bile duct or along the path? Advice me.

Thankfully, surgery is usually out-pt, safe, and easy. ...Read more
