Anyone With Gallbladder Issues Been on Nutrisystems Recently?

I had a huge gallbladder problem after having been on Nutrisystems. They had a class-action suit against them in the past, and I'm curious to see if this is still an issue?

Thanks.

Re: Anyone With Gallbladder Issues Been on Nutrisystems Recently?

No I have not. However when I lost weight due to a low carb diet I started developing gallbladder symptoms.

It turns out that any rapid weight loss can cause gallbladder problems as the liver releases excess cholesterol and bile, especially as one gets older. To blame it on Nutrisystem specifically is probably a bit weak.

Some specialized weight loss clinics will give patients a prescription for Ursodiol in order to try and prevent gallbladder problems.

True - too much or too little fat in a diet are both bad for your gb. Also, NutriSystems - along with some other diet plans - do not distinguish among types of fat. And the original lawsuit was some 20 years ago.

Re: Anyone With Gallbladder Issues Been on Nutrisystems Recently?

yes I did. I think it was about 3 years ago. I'll have to check. I was on the diet for approximately 2 months and one day after eating one of their lunches, I suffered an attack that was so dibilitating I couldn't breathe. I called my sister to take me to a walk in clinic and they sent me for an ultrasound. apparently I had tons of little stones in my gallbladder. The Dr said removing it was not a big deal, but I believe if something is there, it serves a purpose, so I decided not to remove the entire gallbladder until this became a real problem. I have not had an attack since. I was not aware there was a link with gallbladder problems and nutrisystem, however today I saw a celebrity is suing Jenny Craig for the same reason, which prompted me to check if there is a link with Nutrisystem. I wonder if the stones will go away in time now that I don't eat that crap!
