            What causes gallstones?

            Gallbladder is a small organ in the abdominal region of the body, where bile, a digestive fluid, is stored. When you consume food, the gallbladder releases bile into the intestines to help in the digestion. If this bile is too concentrated, it forms hard stones.

            Exact reason for gall stone is still unknown but still people who have a family history of gallstones are more prone to develop these. Then, obese people, those living a sedentary lifestyle, who have high levels of triglyceride; and who lose a lot of weight rapidly. Women are more likely to develop gallstones.

            Risk factors

            Women are more likely to develop cholesterol gallstones during their reproductive years. Use of oral contraceptives and Oestrogen Replacement Therapy increase woman’s risk of developing gall stones.

              How do we diagnose Gallstones?

              1. Abdominal ultrasound - It is the most commonly used diagnostic technique in which doctors move a device called transducer across your abdominal area. This device sends signals to a computer, which creates images that show the structures in your abdomen. But in some cases, it might miss small stones.
              2. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) - This procedure can help identify smaller stones. In this procedure, your doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube-endoscope-through your digestive tract via mouth. A mini transducer in the tube captures the images of surrounding tissue.
              3. Blood tests - Blood tests may help diagnose infections, jaundice, pancreatitis or other complications caused by gallstones.

              In few cases, doctors may have to advise some additional tests such as oral cholecystography, a hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid (HIDA) scan, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), etc.

              Treatment for gallstones

              Surgery

              Gall stones can cause injury to the tissue, lead to infection, or cause blockage. In order to avoid these complications, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove gallbladder. Once it is removed, bile flows directly from your liver into your small intestine.
              Earlier doctors used to perform open surgery, which involved large incision. But now, the gall bladder can be removed laparoscopically. In this, few small incisions are made on the right side of your abdomen. The surgeon uses one incision to insert a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera on the end. This shows your gallbladder on a screen. The surgeon removes the gallbladder through another small incision.
              The procedure laparoscopic cholecystectomy is less invasive, helps in faster recovery, and a shorter hospital stay.

              When to see a doctor

              If you are facing reoccurring pain in abdomen, one should see a doctor.

              If there is intense pain in abdomen, see a doctor immediately. If there is yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes, the stones may have cause jaundice. Infection due to gallstones can cause high fever with chills.

              Doctors say that though gall stones formation cannot be avoided completely, following a healthy lifestyle helps.

              1. Don’t skip meals and eat balanced diet.
              2. Eat high-fibre food such as whole grains, fruits and salad.
              3. Drink atleast 3-4 liters of fluids every day.
              4. Exercise for atleast 30 minutes every day.
              5. Maintain a normal body weight.
              6. Lose weight slowly.

              After gallbladder is removed, the liver sends the bile, the digestive juice, directly to intestine. So, one can easy digest the food, including fatty food. Some people might face diarrhoea soon after the surgery but it settles down in a few weeks.

              When gallstones obstruct the outflow of bile to the stomach, it can cause the gallbladder to spasm. This can lead to sharp pain under the rib cage in the upper
              right side or center of the abdomen. The pain can be so severe that one might mistake it for a heart attack.
              Other common symptoms of a gallbladder attack include:

              1. Pain that lasts several hours
              2. Abdominal pain after eating
              3. Nausea or vomiting
              4. Fever or chills
              5. Light-colored stool
              6. Brownish-colored urine
              7. Yellowing of skin or whites of eyes
              One should see a doctor immediately.

              Post surgery, doctors recommend light, easy to digest food. You should avoid fatty food for sometime. But gradually, as you recover, you can eat almost everything. But ideally, you should practice healthy eating habits.
