What exactly are gallstones and just how are they formed?
Gallstones are solid clumps of cholesterol or pigment material that form in the gallbladder. When the concentration of bile components like cholesterol or bile pigments increases, they precipitate to create solid crystals. These crystals then stick together and form gallstones. Why some people form gallstones is not clearly known, and for that reason there is nothing one can do or avoid in the diet to prevent the gallstones from forming.
What symptoms do patients with gallstones experience?
Patients with gallstones often get severe abdominal pain ? within the right upper side - particularly after consuming fatty food. If your gallstone blocks the common bile duct, jaundice (yellowing of your skin) can be cultivated. Patients with gallstones may also suffer complications such as infection and inflammation from the gallbladder (cholecystitis) or of the pancreas (pancreatitis). Many people who've gallstones don't have any symptoms and these people are said to have so-called "silent" gallstones.
How are gallstones diagnosed?
Gallstones are usually diagnosed by a relatively simple test called ultrasonography. In this test a jelly is applied to the skin and a probe is moved within the abdominal wall to capture images from the organs.
How are gallstones treated?
Not all patients who have gallstones require surgery. In most instances people who do not have any symptoms (silent gallstones) might not require treatment. However, a choice to not operate should be taken only after consulting an expert because when left alone gallstones are likely to cause complications. When a patient develops symptoms due to gallstones they don't go away on their own.
Some patients can be temporarily managed with medicines or by making dietary adjustments, such as cutting down on fat intake. However, laser hair removal isn't a lasting solution to the issue. Treatment with homeopathic or ayurvedic medicines is never able to dissolve gallstones. Taking these types of medicines with the hope that the gallstones will ?melt off? carries the chance of the individual developing serious complications. Surgical removal from the gallbladder (cholecystectomy) is the best strategy to patients in whom the gallstones cause symptoms.
