Q: 

what causes gallbladder disease?

A: gallbladder disease has two major conditions: gallstones or Cholelithiasis (inflammation of the gallbladder wall and nearby abdominal lining). Gallstones form when bile, stored in the gallbladder, hardens, becoming stone-like. A slowing of gallbladder emptying and an excessive amount of cholesterol, bilirubin (bile pigment), or bile salts in the bloodstream may result in gallstones. There are two types of gallstones: cholesterol stones, which comprise about 80% of all gallstones, and pigment stones. Gallstones are a risk factor for gallbladder cancer and cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), which are rare but are increasing in frequency. This increase may be due to...

Q: 

what Is gallbladder Ejection Fraction?

A: gallbladder ejection fraction is measured when a condition called acalculous biliary pain is suspected. Acalculous biliary pain is any gallbladder pain that is not caused by stones. During the test CCK, a hormone, is injected and the gallbladder is measured before and after. The amount of CCK that is released from the gallbladder determines the ejection fraction. Normal is 35-75%. That means that your mom has a small particle of a gall stone stuck in her body. They will need to remove the fragment. This can usually be done in a minimally invasive way....

Q: 

what causes Abdominal Cramping?

A: Abdominal cramping is defined as painful contractions of the muscles which occur in the abdomen, stomach, or intestinal area. The pain can be acute and sudden, or chronic and gradual. Abdominal pain is more often minor, but in some cases, can reflect a serious medical condition. Typically, abdominal cramping is a symptom of another condition, such as diarrhea, lactose intolerance, excessive gas, constipation, colic in infants, or the stomach flu. Cramps may sometimes be felt in the abdomen, even when they arise from organs that are in close proximity, but not necessarily within, the abdominal cavity. This is known as referred pain, because the pain is being referred to the abdomen from another area of the body. Some examples of this type of pain are kidney and
Q: 

what causes cancer of the pancreas?

A: SmokingWe do not really know what causes most cases of cancer of the pancreas. The biggest single risk factor is smoking. Up to a third of pancreatic cancers may be caused by smoking. Cigarette smoke contains chemicals called nitrosamines which are known to cause cancer. AlcoholBeer also contains nitrosamines, although the level of these has been cut as much as possible. There has been some evidence of a link between heavy drinking and cancer of the pancreas. Drinking is certainly linked to pancreatic disease and this is a risk factor for cancer. Exposure to some industrial chemicals such as beta-naphthalene and benzidine have been linked to pancreatic cancer. Diabetes and chronic pancreatitisRisk of cancer of the pancreas is increased if...
Q: 

what foods should I avoid with gallbladder stones?

A: The gallbladder helps to aid digestion by releasing bile after a meal to help break up the food. Gallstones (cholelithiasis) occur when a substance that is part of the bile becomes hardened. A gallstone may block the duct of the gallbladder causing inflammation and pain. One risk factor for having gallstones is eating a diet that is high in fat, sugar, and cholesterol and low in fiber. A diet to help prevent gallstones would be one that is low in fat, cholesterol, sugar and refined carbohydrates and high in fiber. Foods to avoid or limit include animal fats, full fat dairy products, cookies, cakes, pastries, white bread, white rice, and eggs. High-fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains should be encouraged. A registered...

Want to flush gallbladder stones

A: Recommend drinking plenty of water. Water flushes the body of numerous things including: toxins, cancer cells, cholesterol, plaque, chemicals and much more.
