Probiotics and Gallbladder

Will taking probiotics help get rid of gallstones or gallbladder issues?

No, they aren't used for that purpose. surgery is the recommended procedure. GB issues are caused by the gb constricting to spew bile into your digestive system in order to digest fat. Controlling the amount of fat inyour diet can help with the pain but it won't get rid of the stones or repair any damage already done.

Re: Probiotics and Gallbladder

Thanks for the quick reply. Where can I get a list of foods which will not irritate the gb if it is indeed the problem? Haven't had any tests or doctor visit as of yet.

No fat. That means nothing fried, no dairy (unless fat free), no eggs, no oil, no salad dressing (unless fat free), no sauces (alfredo, cream sauces, etc), little or no red meat unless it is VERY lean, no chicken or turkey skin (just plain breast meat), no chips unless baked ones, no Mexican food, little or no Italian food, no mayo, no salmon or other fatty fish, cake frosting, most sweets if have butter in them, etc.

You can eat: lean turkey or chicken breast meat, veggies,baked or boiled potatoes, yogurt, bread, mustard, lean fish (snapper, flounder, etc), fat free sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.

But if you in fact have gallstones, this will not get rid of them. The gb would need to be surgically removed. This diet will just help to get attacks away or at a minimum.

Re: Probiotics and Gallbladder

Thanks very much for the list of what I can eat. In small quantity because it feels like everything sits high up in my stomach. Hope to get in to Doctor later today.
