The human body consists of many parts and every part plays a very crucial role. The gallbladder is a small bag that holds a digestive juice produced by the liver used in the breakdown of dietary fats. The gallbladder extracts water from its bag until the liquid becomes highly concentrated.
The functioning of this very important part gets affected because of gallstones. Gallstones (biliary calculi) are small stones made from cholesterol, bile pigment, and calcium salts, usually in a mixture that forms in the gallbladder. They are a common disorder of the digestive system and affect around 15 percent of people aged 50 years and over.
The only way to get rid of this disorder permanently is removing your gallbladder in medical terms it is called a cholecystectomy.
Symptoms of gallstones:
This condition is generally asymptomatic as gall stones in 70% of cases do not show any warnings. But one may keep an eye on the following symptoms and seek medical advice instantly:
- Mild pain in the abdomen and back. Pain is generally infrequent, but severe
- Increase in abdominal pain especially after having a fatty meal
- Fever and pain as gallbladder or bile duct becomes infected.
- Nausea and vomiting
