Rapid Weight Loss Could Lead to Gallbladder Symptoms

We all know that maintaining a healthy weight is vital for staying disease-free. However, what you may not know is losing weight too quickly is actually linked to the development of gallbladder symptoms.


Crash diets and other schemes that involve extreme calorie restriction for quick weight loss have been connected with the formation of gallstones, as Dr. Andrew Weil points out. Gallstones may block the biliary duct, the small tube that allows bile from the gallbladder to empty into the small intestine to help digest your food. When the biliary duct becomes blocked this leads to gallbladder symptoms.


Dr. Marina Rose has helped people with gallbladder symptoms and other challenging and chronic health problems in and around the city of Mountain View, CA.


Like so many other areas of health, balance and moderation are keys to maintaining a healthy gallbladder and achieving healthy weight loss. Aim for gradual weight loss, not more than about one pound per week and possibly two if you are just beginning to lose weight. Adopt healthy lifestyle changes slowly. Not only will your body have time to adjust to the changes, you’ll be more likely to stick to them in the long run.


Choosing healthy foods with abundant fiber is an important step for both weight loss and for preventing gallbladder symptoms in the future. Lowering or eliminating sugar from your diet is another way to promote healthy weight loss.


One of the best ways to understand the underlying nutritional cause of your symptoms is to know which foods and nutrients you have trouble digesting and those you are deficient in.   Click here to take Dr. Rose’s Nutritional Profile Quiz and get an overview of what your nutritional imbalances could be.
