In brief: Gallstone factors

Gallstones are linked to chronic liver disease (stones usually of pigment type), but also reflect low hdl/high triglycerides, genetics, age, sex (females 2x more), obesity, drugs, low fiber, tpn, diabetes, hemolysis, pregnancy, primary biliary diseases.
Factors in stone formation include: bile supersaturated with cholesterol, nucleation of cholesterol crystals, & impaired gallbladder function.
