Why does someone with a dysfunctional gallbladder have acid reflux problems? Should they take omeprazole?
Not the case. Dysfunctional or sick gallbladder is not related to acid reflux, they are two different situations which may co exist. Gall bladder is related to bile delivery to stomach which helps digestion, that's why in some people Omeprazole helps, but they are different. If you do not have reflux disease and you take your gallbladder out , you may not need omeprazole.
My doctor had me on omeprazole everyday for acid reflux. Well we just found out my gallbladder is only functioning 15%! should I continue omeorazole or ask him to get off of it since its my gallbladder?
Do you have 2 probs? Don't know you. Call your doc. You may have one, the other, or 2 separate issues. (your symptoms arguably could be due to something entirely unrelated as well). Your doc can fill you in. Read more...
