The Secrets of Gallbladder


What is Gallbladder?

The gallbladder is a small pear-like organ located below the liver (on the right side of the abdomen).

What does the gallbladder do to the human body?

The gallbladder stores the bile to secret it later into the small intestine to help digest food.

But when the gallbladder becomes inflamed, everything becomes different.

Gallbladder inflammation (Cholecystitis), How does it happen?

Gallbladder inflammation (Cholecystitis) occurs when the gallstones obstruct the bile duct, causing the bile to accumulate inside the gallbladder and resulting in developing an inflammation.

What happens when the symptoms of gallbladder inflammation (Cholecystitis) are neglected?

In the case of negligence, this may lead to complications such as:

  • Gallbladder gets Infected.
  • Gangrene (tissue death).
  • Gallbladder rupture.

What are the methods to treat gallbladder inflammation:

First, analgesics and antibiotics are prescribed in the event of developing an infection within the gallbladder, then the surgical treatment is performed by removing the gallstones and the gallbladder, the procedure often performed via surgical endoscope.

How to prevent gallbladder inflammation?

  • Losing weight slowly (half a kilogram to 1 kg per week) because rapid weight loss increases the likelihood of developing gallstones, which in turn lead to gallbladder inflammation.

  • A person must maintain an ideal and healthy weight, following healthy eating habits and exercising regularly because the more overweight a person is, the more likely they are to develop gallstones and gallbladder inflammation (Cholecystitis).
