Why Is Beer Bad For Gall Bladder Disease
Egg is not good.: Egg contains both protein and fats. Liver metabolizes the protein and also produces bile, which is green in color & is stored in the gall bladder. During digestion, bile is released from the gall bladder through the common bile duct. Bile helps in the digestion and absorption of fats through the formation of "micelles". So, egg may not be good for someone with liver or gall bladder disease. Thanks. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
Decreased blood flow: Nicotine is a stimulating drug, and can cause blood vessels to constrict, or become smaller. When blood flow to the kidneys is reduced, people can sustain damage to the glomerulus, which is the filter of the kidney. Studies have shown that filtration is less effective in smokers due to decreased blood supply, and they tend to have higher levels of protein/albumin in their urine- like in diabetes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have gall stones and sludge. What causes gall stones, iwas told sweets and spicy foods is that true?
Not quite...: Most stones in america are cholesterol-based, & develop due to genetic, systemic, and local factors that promote crystals precipitating in bile (sludge) that gradually increase in size (gallstones).

I'm 22 don't drink or smoke but my urine sometimes is dark yellow how likely is kidney cancer the cause? or liver damage if I haven't smoked
Urine color can be: A tip to something wrong, but dark amber urine usually means it is concentrated, and you have not drank enough water. Liver does excrete bile and bilirubin and it can be filtered into urine, but at levels where your skin and eyes would be yellow. Smoking is bad, but unlikely to be related. A urinanalysis can answer these questions and answers cheaply and accurately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe bad,never good: Sodas have a high acid content can make it easier for kidney stones to form.

Bile duct obstruction could cause liver damage which could cause portal hypertension which would cause splenic enlargement. Once again, this would be extremely rare. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
