Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Gallbladder pain is (often misspelled "gall bladder") an all-inclusive term used to describe any pain due to disease related to the gallbladder. The major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. Symptoms vary and may be triggered by eating certain foods. The pain may be described as intermittent, constant, abdominal, radiating to the back, mild to severe depending on the underlying cause. A brief review of the gallbladder anatomy and function may help readers better understand gallbladder pain. The gallbladder is connected to the liver via ducts that supply bile to the gallbladder for storage. These bile ducts then form the common hepatic duct that joins with the cystic duct from the gallbladder to form the common bile duct that empties into the GI tract (duodenum). In addition, the pancreatic duct usually merges with the common bile duct just before it enters the duodenum. Hormones trigger the gallbladder to release bile when fat and amino acids reach the duodenum after eating a meal, which facilitates the digestion of these foods. Statistics suggest that women may have up to twice the incidence of gallstones than men. As stated previously, the major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. There are two major causes of pain that either originate from the gallbladder or involve the gallbladder directly. They are due to 1) intermittent or complete blockage of any of the ducts by gallstones; or 2) gallstone sludge and/or inflammation that may accompany irritation or infection of the surrounding tissues, when partial or complete obstruction of ducts causes pressure and ischemia (inadequate blood supply due to a blockage of blood vessels in the area) to develop in the adjacent tissues.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 If you have no gallbladder pain even if you have gallstones but never had pain), you need no treatment. Some patients who have had one or two attacks may elect to avoid treatment. Pain during an acute attack is often treated with morphine. Medical treatments include * oral bile salt therapy 50% effective, * ursodiol Actigall, for example * dissolution, and * lithotripsy shock waves. The definitive treatment is to remove the gallbladder and or the obstructing gallstones by surgery. Currently, the surgical method of choice is laparoscopic surgery, where the gallbladder is removed by instruments using only small incisions in the abdomen. However, some patients may require more extensive surgery. Usually, people do well once the gallbladder is removed unless there is an underlying cause that mimics gallbladder pain for example, biliary dyskinesia, a motility disorder of sphincter of Oddi. Women who are pregnant are treated like women who are not pregnant, although pregnant women more commonly have cholesterol gallstone development than non-pregnant women. Although supportive care is tried in women who are pregnant, acute cholecystitis is the second most common surgical emergency in pregnancy appendicitis is the first.

The pain of gallbladder disease almost always has one of two causes - gallstones or cholecystitis. Gallstones are stones that form in the gallbladder (often misspelled "gall bladder"). They vary in size from a millimeter or two to several centimeters and are made up of cholesterol or bile pigments. Cholecystitis means inflammation of the gallbladder. Although, cholecystitis is most commonly caused by gallstones, there are other less common causes as well. What is the mechanism of gallbladder pain? Gallstones have a tendency to become lodged in the bile ducts leading from the gallbladder or liver into the intestines. When gallstones lodge in the ducts, they give rise to a specific type of pain called biliary colic. The characteristics of biliary colic are very consistent, and it is important to recognize its characteristics because they direct the physician to the most appropriate test to diagnose gallstones, primarily abdominal ultrasonography. In approximately 5% of cases, ultrasonography will fail to show gallstones. In such situations, if the characteristics of biliary colic are typical, physicians will go on to other more advanced tests for diagnosing gallstones, specifically endoscopic ultrasound. Finally, most gallstones do not cause pain, and are frequently found incidentally during abdominal ultrasonography. If the symptoms for which the ultrasonography is being done are not typical of biliary colic, it is unlikely that the symptoms are caused by gallstones. The gallstones can be truly silent. This is important to recognize because surgery to remove the gallstones is unlikely to relieve the symptoms. When gallstones lodge suddenly in the duct leading from the gallbladder (cystic duct), the duct leading from the liver to the cystic duct (common hepatic duct), or the duct leading from the cystic duct to the intestine (common bile duct), the normal flow of bile from the liver is interrupted.

*******balancedhealthtoday****/glytamins.html Stones or no stones, my answer is that basically you treat almost any gallbladder problem (life-treatening complications must be considered carefully and with your MD) pretty much the same way, with diet, with bile thinning substances, with fat emulsifiers and metabolizers. And you work on improving your overall digestion in general. Gallstones are considered a gallbladder disease and for any gallbladder problem or disease the above-mentioned principals are the same. For gallbladder stones specifically, however, there are some products and foods that more directly affect the stones which can be found in the diet section and in the extra-strength gallbladder relief kit of gallbladder products. *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******balancedhealthtoday****/glytamins.html HOW GALLSTONES FORM Stasis or stagnation of bile or incomplete emptying of the gallbladder causes the bile to coagulate or precipitate and clump together into stones. The precurser to stones will be what is termed "sludge".7 A more scientific explanation would be that cholesterol stones are caused by the imbalance of cholesterol to bile salts, too much of one or not enough of the other. There can also be too much bilirubin. So what good is that information? How can we control the too much of any of the above? Useless, I say. The following research makes much more practical sense as far as we are concerned: "Formation of pure cholesterol stones is initiated by an excessive intake of highly purified carbohydrates, a large intake of animal fats and a restricted intake of vegetable fibers. When the protein content of the lithogenic diet was reduced, mixed or combined stones were formed in golden hamsters. These experimentally, dietarily produced gallstones had compositions and fine structures similar to those of human gallstones. Some mentions were made of black stones which were found in the aged golden hamsters fed with lithogenic diets." 4 Translation: Cholesterol stones are formed by eating a diet high in refined foods, especially white foods -- sugar, white bread, pasta, pastries, sodas, etc., lots of meat and by not eating enough vegetables. When the protein content of diet is low and just the sugars (refined carbohydrates) are eaten, the calicified stones began to form along with the softer cholesterol ones. The black stones that are sometimes passed during a flush or found in a surgically-removed gallbladder, seem to be older stones that have been there for a long time. Lithogenic means contributing to the formation of stones. *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******balancedhealthtoday****/glytamins.html PREVENTION OF GALLSTONES * Do not overeat * Diet high in fiber - lots of vegetables * Avoid refined carbohydrates (including sugar and white flour) * Omega 3 oils and other polyunsaturated fats and monosaturated fats such as olive oil, avocado, sunflower etc. * Avoid saturated and trans fats * Eat more polyunsaturated * Eat moderate amounts of lean meats * Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water per day * Regular exercise * Lose excess weight, but slowly * Elimination diet for food allergies - cut out common allergens such as wheat and all other grains containing gluten, and dairy * Supplemental bile salts and bile thinning agents as found in the gallbladder products. In particular I would suggest the Gallbladder Starter Kit to begin with and then the Gallstone Kit. Individual products that are also helpful are Bile Salts and Phos Drops. The Lemon Tea Kit helps to emulsify fats and research shows that limonene has been used successfully to dissolve gall stones. *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 The liver is an organ about the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. The liver is essential for digesting food and ridding your body of toxic substances. Liver disease can be inherited (genetic) or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage. Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition. Signs and symptoms of liver disease include: * Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice) * Abdominal pain and swelling * Swelling in the legs and ankles * Itchy skin * Dark urine color * Pale stool color, or bloody or tar-colored stool * Chronic fatigue * Nausea or vomiting * Loss of appetite * Tendency to bruise easily * When to see a doctor Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any persistent signs or symptoms that worry you. Seek immediate medical attention if you have abdominal pain that is so severe that you can't stay still.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 If the fat in your liver makes up 5–10 percent of the organ’s weight, then you are diagnosed with fatty liver disease. There are two main types of fatty liver disease, alcoholic liver disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is another rare condition that happens when fat builds up in the liver of pregnant women. One of the hardest-working organs in the body, the liver works tirelessly to detoxify our blood, to produce the bile needed to digest fat, to break down hormones, and to store essential vitamins, minerals and iron. This is why it’s so important to take care of our livers or practice a liver cleanse — as when the liver is not functioning optimally, we cannot digest our food properly, especially fats. It’s the liver’s responsibility to process nutrients absorbed by the intestines so they’re more efficiently absorbed. The liver also regulates blood composition to balance protein, fat and sugar. Finally, it removes toxins from the blood, and breaks down both alcohol and medications. For people with fatty liver disease, the handling of fat by liver cells is disturbed. Increased amounts of fat are removed from the blood and produced by liver cells, and not enough is disposed of or exported by the cells. As a result of this, fat accumulates in the liver. There is an imbalance between the uptake of fat and its oxidation and export. Today, we’re faced with so many environmental toxins occurring in our homes, places of work and in our food supply, so it’s essential for our general health and well-being to keep our livers functioning properly.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Alcoholic liver disease is the result of drinking alcohol excessively. This condition is in direct correlation to the amount of alcohol you drink; your blood is not able to break down the alcohol properly, and it affects your liver. This can also be a hereditary condition because genes that are passed down from your parents may increase your chances of becoming an alcoholic. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered the most common liver disorder in the Western world. It’s recognized as one of the most common forms of chronic liver disease and is among the most common forms of chronic liver disease across the globe. NAFLD is most likely to happen in people who are overweight and middle-aged, but recently there are more and more cases of children with NAFLD because it is a result of the standard American diet. People with NAFLD often have high cholesterol and diabetes as well. Typically, this condition is linked to malnutrition, medications, inherited liver disease, fast weight loss and too much bacteria in the small intestine. There are three types of NAFLD: Nonalcoholic fatty liver is when fat builds up in the liver, but it won’t necessarily hurt you. This means that it’s causing excess liver fat, but there are no complications, which is common. According to a study conducted at the University of Sydney at Westmead Hospital in Australia, NAFLD is present in 17 percent to 33 percent of Americans. This growing percentage parallels the frequency of obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis happens to a small number of people with fatty liver. The fat causes inflammation in the liver, and this can impair the liver’s ability to function. This can also lead to cirrhosis, or the scarring of the liver. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-associated cirrhosis is when liver inflammation leads to the scarring of the liver tissue, making the liver heavier
