Low vitamin D3: There may be a group of patients who do not absorb vitamin d3 efficiently. They seem to require higher doses of d3 (6000 to 10000 units daily) to achieve adequate blood levels, (between 40 and 70). Don't give up, stay on your vitamin d3 and get annual blood level.

Where will the bile be produced in the case of amputation of gall bladder with stones?

Where will the bile be produced in the case of amputation of gall bladder with stones?

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. Normally, ingesting a fatty meal stimulates the gallbladder to empty it's stored bile. Most people without a gallbladder manage to absorb fats without difficulty; those that don't will have unabsorbed fat, leading to diarrhea. ...Read more

No gall bladder. Would taking " bile acids factors" by jarrow hurt if possibly have non-acid reflux? Aka bile reflux?

No gall bladder. Would taking " bile acids factors" by jarrow hurt if possibly have non-acid reflux? Aka bile reflux?

Wouldn't help: Bile reflux gastritis is caused by inflammation of stomach lining by alkaline bile (a digestive detergent). Antacid meds and acid reducers like Prilosec don't help this, because acid is not the issue. Other meds that coat the stomach and/or prevent back flow from small bowel into the stomach help.

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

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

Not usually: The standard treatment for gallstone removal is to remove where they are formed: the gallbladder. Other means may be used to dissolve gallstones, such as pills, lithotripsy, or even "gallbladder flushes": these all fail to permanently solve the problem, and, in the case of the "flush", may be dangerous if stones get stuck in the bile duct. Thankfully, surgery is usually out-pt, safe, and easy. ...Read more

This is due to non-biliary causes (irritable bowel, ulcer dz, gerd, etc), organic biliary dz (common duct stones/stricture/cancer), or functional biliary disease (sphincter of oddi dysfunction).

labs, ultrasound+/-ercp, depending on above results. ...Read more

My ultrasound report says "gall bladder is distended show smooth walls, lumen is echo free, common bile duct is not dilated" What does this all mean? Should I be worried?

Gallbladder U/S: This sounds like a normal report. Echo free means no stones or polyps were seen. No bile duct dilation is normal. Gallbladder distention can be normal (it fills with bile then contracts to release the bile with meals). Of course, the report should be interpreted by the ordering physician, taking into account your symptoms that led to it being ordered in the first place. ...Read more

My 16 year old is having liquid bile like diarrea, stomach discomfort, belching over and over, passing gas, and acid reflux? Gall bladder

Nope: The hallmark of gb disease is severe attacks of upper-middle or upper-right abdominal pain. Your son should be seen by his pediatrician to work-up possible causes of his diarrhea. This can include dietary issues, infections, irritable bowel, or even inflammatory bowel disease (rarely). If they can't get to the bottom of it, they will likely refer him to a GI specialist. Good luck. ...Read more
