You could have Gallstones With or Without Gallbladder Symptoms

Gallstones are a common health concern. They are more common in women, but men get them too with estimates of 10% of Americans having gallstones. Surprisingly, though about 80% of people who do have gallstones do not experience any gallbladder symptoms.

 

So how do you know if you have them? Gallstones are often detected during medical imaging procedures being done for other health concerns. However, many people find out that they have gallstones when they start causing symptoms after entering the bile duct. These symptoms include:

 

  • Pain in the stomach, right shoulder area, or under the breastbone
  • An achey feeling under the right rib cage
  • Possible nausea and vomiting
  • Pain that doesn’t subside with position changes or pain killers

 

Dr. Marina Rose has helped people with gallbladder symptoms and other challenging and chronic health conditions in and around the city Sunnyvale, CA.

 

Fortunately, eating a healthy diet can help prevent gallstone formation. Prevent gallstones by eating enough fiber, avoiding trans-fats and starchy carbohydrates, and cutting back on sugar. Choose healthy fats instead. Drinking plenty of water to support healthy bile production is another helpful step you can take, as Dr. Andrew Weil also suggests.

 

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.
