Is there a non surgical way or diet to treat gallstones?


The doctor said I have cholelithiasis, he suggest a minor operation. I don't really like to undergo anymore operation is there a good diet or alternative medicine that can treat this?
----------

TOO RIGHT THERE IS!

Don't just listen to the quacks. Go see a Naturopath. The cleanses for removing gallstones are quick, easy and efficient, there is no reason for removing your gall bladder.

Only have it removed in emergency situations - but don't do the cleanses on your own - go see a qualified naturopath who can teach you to do them properly.

Yes, they stones can come back in time, but the cleanses are too easy too do to remove them again AND you NEED your gall bladder. It is not a useless part in your system - a good Naturopath will help you find the answers to why they are forming and sort the cause of the problem.

Removing the gall bladder will just fix a symptom and leave you with the cause of the problem, no gall bladder and a rich doctor. Just do a search for "liver" or "gallbladder cleanse" to see the volume of info that there is out there about this.

Hope that helps.  (+ info)

Low fat diet for a pregnant woman?


Before you judge and say that it is bad for me to be on any kind of diet while pregnant, I have a good reason for it. It was prescibed by my doc because I have Cholelithiasis Biliary Colic, or irritated gall bladder. I have to be on a low fat, clear liquids diet. The clear liquids don't bother me at all. Water is pretty much what I drink most of the time. I don't really drink pop.
Anyway, I wanted to know if anyone could give me recipes or good things I can eat that are low in fat? I still want to eat healthy for my baby. I can't do fish, but am open to other suggestions. Any thoughts?

The best thing would be to ask your physician to refer you to a nutritionist or dietician who could help you plan meals that would be low in fat, with regard to your gall bladder condition, and still nutritious for pregnancy. They will work with you when it comes to dietary preferences too :)

Until you've gotten that referral though... just keep in mind that the best dishes are the simplest, using few sauces, especially those containing cheese, cream and oils. Use information from your OB-GYN to determine how many servings of each food group you should have each day for your baby's health. (Generally this is a pretty normal diet with one extra serving each of protein, calcium/dairy and yellow/green veg/fruit.) Make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin supplement.

If you like stir fry, this is a great way to have your protein (skinless chicken, lean beef and yes, even pork of it's lean) with a ton of veggies (broccoli, red and green peppers, julienned carrots, yellow and green squash, green beans, peas, you choose your own combinations) and just cook them quickly in a wok or large skillet, using only a thin coating of olive oil on the pan. Start with the items that take the longest to cook and end with something that requires little cooking, like snow peas or bean sprouts.

For seasoning, just a little soy sauce, salt and pepper... can throw in a little ginger if you'd like. If you want it to seem "saucier" then mix a little cornstarch with your soy sauce before adding it in toward the end. Serve this with some brown rice.

Salads are also a great way to get lots of veggies, a little protein, just avoid cheese (or use lowfat cheese) and use fat-free salad dressings or lesser amounts of the lowfat versions. Consider making your own salad dressing using a 6oz can V-8 juice, 1tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, and 1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese thrown into the blender. Sounds strange... it's very tasty :)

Pastas are great as long as you have them with lowfat sauces and additions. Try simple marinaras with a little parmesan on top. Parmesan is actually a very lowfat cheese. Steam your own selection of veggies and have them with the pasta, with or without sauce. Avoid alfredo sauces because they're high in fat content.

When you choose your dairy products, choose skim milk and skim milk or lowfat versions of cheeses, yogurts, sour cream etc and then use sparingly. (Keep in mind you will need to have enough fat-free yogurt or skim milk to fulfill your calcium requirement during pregnancy.)

Consider having a fat-free smoothie for breakfast, using 8oz skim milk, a frozen banana (cut in chunks) and a handful of frozen strawberries. Whiz that up in the blender and it's very satisfying, and fulfills one calcium and two fruit units for the day.

Please do seek counseling and suggestions from a registered dietician or nutritionist. If you use the health department for your prenatal care, they have folks there who can advise you as well. Best of luck to you and congratulations on your impending arrival :)  (+ info)

somebody help..Pls explain pathophysiology of cholelithiasis...?


This is for my case study.
PS make it comprehensive. thank you..
----------

Pathophysiology: Gallstones are rocklike collections of material that form inside the gallbladder. Different types exist, and they are categorized by their primary composition; cholesterol stones are most common (75-80% in the United States) followed by pigment, then mixed stones. The stones form when there is an imbalance or change in the composition of bile.

Normally, bile acids, lecithin, and phospholipids help to maintain cholesterol solubility in bile. When bile becomes supersaturated with cholesterol, it crystallizes and forms a nidus for stone formation. Calcium and pigment also may be incorporated in the stone. Impaired gallbladder motility, biliary stasis, and bile content predispose people to the formation of gallstones.

Gallbladder sludge is crystallization within bile without stone formation. Sludge may be a step in the formation of stones, or it may occur independently. Five to fifteen percent of patients with acute cholecystitis present without stones (acalculous cholecystitis). This typically occurs in patients with prolonged illness, such as those with major trauma or with prolonged ICU stays.

Pigment stones, which comprise 15% of gallstones, are formed by the crystallization of calcium bilirubinate. Diseases that lead to increased destruction of red blood cells (hemolysis), abnormal metabolism of hemoglobin (cirrhosis), or infections (including parasitic) predispose people to pigment stones. Black stones and brown stones exist. Black stones are found in people with hemolytic disorders. Brown stones are found in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic duct. They are associated with infection in the gallbladder and commonly are found in people of Asian descent.

Gallstone differentiation is an important consideration in management; cholesterol stones are more likely to respond to nonsurgical management than are pigment or mixed stones.  (+ info)

Please explain my test results to me?


I have recently received my ultrasound results and Im not sure what they mean I would also like to know how bad my lab work is below and what foods can i eat to improve them? I just had a baby about 2months ago and I would like to lose about 30pounds any tips? Does walking help at all? I know im not in the best health please help...the results read: Patients gallbladder shows what appear to be numerous calcifications and a moderately contracted gallbladder. The common bile duct is not distended and measures no more than 0.4cm in width.

The included portions of the liver and rights are unremarkable and there is no abnormality of included portions of aorta and inferior vena cava.

Conclusions:

1. Multiple cholelithiasis with an apparently contracted gallbladder

2. Further assesment of this patient with radionuclide HIDA study is
recommended.

ALSO: My triglycerides are 260
My cholesterol is 224
VLDL Cholesterol cal(which im not sure what it is)52
LDL Cholesterol calc129

High triglycerides means you are eating too many refined carbohydrates or sugar. Cut back on the refined foods.  (+ info)

I was diagnosed with fatty liver, hyperechoic. Is this because of 40 mg simvastin? How serious is this? Help!?


I have high cholesterol. So the doctor doubled my dose of simvastatin to 40 mg. Now I have fatty liver, it is approximately 17 cm. Which is more serious the high cholesterol or the hyerechoic with no evidence of cholelithiasis?
Is there any other treatment which would not adversely affect my liver yet significantly reduce my cholesterol? HELP!
----------

I seriously doubt the Simvastatin is causing your fatty liver. You are only taking half the max dose of Simvastatin. Most likely you have a biliary disease or some kind of blockage. Or you are drinking too much alcohol. If your liver was damaged prior then the Simvastatin could build in your system but your doctor should have taken Liver Function Test in your blood work. If you are concerned ask your doctor about it.  (+ info)
