When to Worry About Gallbladder Disease Symptoms
Dr. Judy here, traditional naturopath, here to share with you when you should worry, or not worry about gallbladder disease symptoms…
Gallstones form in the gallbladder. They form typically because of eating the S.A.D. Toxins get backed up in your biliary tube within your liver which prevents bile, toxins, and cholesterol from draining out from the liver.
This causes gallbladder disease symptoms like:
- digestive problems occur only right after eating a high fat meal
- chronic diarrhea
- hormonal imbalance
- skin problems
- intense pain in the upper right part of the abdomen, shoulder, behind breastbone
- extreme exhaustion
Acute, intense pain occurs if a huge gallstone passes through the common bile duct. This is especially true if you eat a high fat meal, which stimulates the flow of bile from the gallbladder.
Sometimes a gallstone gets stuck in the bile duct, blocking the flow of bile into the intestine. Symptoms that accompany this are:
- jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
- inflammation of the gallbladder
- dark urine
- rapid heartbeat and abrupt blood pressure drop
- feces appears gray-white
- severe pain in the upper right side of the abdomen
- fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, severe pain in the upper right abdomen
X-rays may not show gallstone formation because some of them may not have calcified (which is how they are detected).
Small gallstones can pass through the biliary tubing and bile duct without notice and eventually be expelled from the body. But gallstones that get trapped in the gallbladder or bile tubing and ducts can cause, pain, inflammation, and even infection!
Gallstones in the liver and gallbladder absorb toxins and become breeding ground for parasites and bacteria. When gallstones have formed, they continue to get bigger and bigger and can block biliary passageways in the liver. This shuts off the flow of bile to the gallbladder and to the intestines.
These large gallstones can also block the biliary tubing which causes the liver to make less bile.
This decreases your ability to digest your foods, because without bile, you can’t break down fats and oils. Then your cholesterol increases!
You liver begins to deteriorate! Gallstones provide a breeding ground for microorganisms, which can lead to infections and slows down liver function even more.
Doing liver flushes and detoxifying your liver are a must to avoid gallstone formation!
