How can I know if I have problems with my gallblader or pancreas?What tests should I do?

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.

You'd probably have lfts done as well as a lipase and/or amylase. ...Read more

What to do if I have an enlarged thyriod with multiple nodules. What am i to expect if I have it removed?

Hypothyroidism: If it needs to be removed, have it done by a surgeon who does a lot of thyroid surgery. Complications will be less likely. The surgeon should remove all the thyroid, and you will need to take thyroid replacement, which is easy to adjust and you will feel fine. If the nodules are benign (on biopsy and ultrasound) and not too big, you may not need surgery. ...Read more

Depends on Type: Stones can be uric acid, calcium phosphate, calcium oxalate and cysteine. Depending on type you should modify your diet.

Can you tell me if I have gallbladder stones can I still do the liver and gallstones cleanse?

Caution advised: I would advise caution with "cleanses". Your liver is not "dirty" and does not need cleaning. Gallstones can cause problems if they either block the opening of the gallbladder, or block the passage of bile into the small intestine. I would show your doctor your specific cleanse product, and get their opinion. There are a variety of these cleanses, with widely differing ingredients. ...Read more
