Gallbladder disease is used for various types of conditions that can affect your gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped sac located underneath your liver. Its main function is to store the bile made by your liver and pass it along through a duct that empties into the small intestine. The bile helps you digest fats in your small intestine.
There are different types of gallbladder disease:
Symptoms differ from patient to patient. Some people will have mild symptoms for months or even years until they finally seek treatment. Other people may have symptoms only once or twice a year or even weekly, but their symptoms never reach the level where they need medical care. In some cases, the first gallbladder attack or the pain or symptoms linked with their gallbladder disease can be so severe that it forces them to go to the hospital.
The Link between Obesity and Gallbladder Disease
Obesity increases your chances of developing gallstones. Obesity can lead to gallstones because it varies the balance of cholesterol versus lecithin versus bile acids in the gallbladder. Excess body weight also makes it more difficult for the gallbladder to empty. Wherein, it allows cholesterol-rich bile to accumulate and harden into stones.
Losing excess weight to reduce your risk of the disease is a surefire way. HCG diet can help you.
The HCG diet obliges you to consume a daily dose of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). It is a pro-hormone that helps the body produce more hormones. The HCG hormones reduce the feeling of hunger. HCG is a low-calorie diet that allows you to eat very little comfortably. It is believed that the presence of the HCG hormone in the bloodstream takes away your appetite.
Aside from weight loss, one of the benefits of HCG is that it keeps you from losing muscle while you diet. By raising the hormone levels in your body, the HCG hormone makes a muscle-building state which counteracts the muscle-breakdown state.
