Abnormalities of lipid metabolism, gallstone disease and gallbladder function

“Recent evidence supports the hypothesis that cholecystectomy may not be innocuous and that the GB has a significant role in the regulation of hepatic triglyceride metabolism. This article provides information regarding recent advances in the understanding of the interaction between regulation of lipid metabolism, insulin resistance, gallstone disease and GB function.”   Gallstone disease is highly prevalent with […]

THE FAT-BURNING PROPERTIES OF BILE ACIDS

BY DANIEL GWARTNEY, M.D.FRIDAY, 7 FEBRUARY, 2014 A 2006 study published in the journal Nature revealed that a component in bile can rev up the metabolism and increase weight loss in mice, possibly in humans as well.1 Bile is the sticky, yellow-green, fluid produced in the liver, stored in the gallbladder and secreted into the intestines during a […]

Diet after cholecystectomy

Curr Med Chem. 2017 May 17. doi: 10.2174/0929867324666170518100053. [Epub ahead of print] Altomare DF1, Rotelli MT1, Palasciano N1. Abstract Patients with gallstones are often affected by alimentary disorders contributing to the onset of gallstones disease. Cholecystectomy can have nutritional and metabolic consequences in the short-term (diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating) and in the long-term (increased Body Mass Index […]
