Causes, Prevention & Diagnosis

How Are Gallstones Prevented?
There are no definite preventive measures, but this is observed that Gallstones occur more frequently in people at two opposite ends of the weight spectrum — those who are overweight or obese, and those who fast or lose a lot of weight quickly. In addition, research published in the journal Gut in 2005 suggests that high intake of carbohydrate, a fluctuating glycemic load and glycemic index increase the risk of symptomatic gall stone disease in men. Therefore, it is important to adopt a healthy diet and stick to regular meal times.
How Are Gallstones Diagnosed?
Ultrasound is a reliable diagnostic tool in diagnosing gall bladder stone disease in most of the cases.
