In brief: People w/Gallstones
Risk factors for gallbladder disease include a strong family history, obesity, certain ethnic groups, precipitous weight loss, blood disorders, liver infections, etc.
Early-on, it is much more common in women, yet the odds even out after age 50. There is a less-common entity of gallbladder disease without stones, yet this is the exception.
