The correct functioning of the gall bladder underlies the whole digestive process, as it helps our body to digest, absorb food and to burn fat.
The gallbladder is a very small-sized internal organ. Many people simply “don't notice”, you know what this is and all, but it is very important for the health of our body: it accumulates bile and thus helps to carry out the digestive process. In women, problems with the gall bladder occur much more often than men, and, of course, not superfluous will know the main symptoms of disease of this organ. He's the subject of our today's article.What are the functions of the gallbladder?
Symptoms of gall bladder disease1. Bloating and flatulence
- The gallbladder is pear-shaped and located in the right part of the abdomen just below the liver. This kind of “pouch” in which the accumulated bile coming directly from the liver, and which has communication with the small intestine (digestive tract).
- Bile from the gall bladder, as already mentioned, helps the digestive process and also acts as a fat emulsifier. It helps them digest and burn.
- Most often disease of this organ occur in people who are experiencing problems with excess weight, suffering from gastrointestinal dysfunction and have elevated cholesterol levels. These three factors must be taken into consideration.
- Still need to take into account the fact of the presence of stones in the gallbladder (the underlying disease of the body) and, of course, of inflammation of different nature.
the Gallbladder is directly linked with the digestive process that we have already found. So it is natural that when there is any problem (bile does not flow properly, a locked channel or there is inflammation), we begin to feel discomfort: a feeling of heaviness in the stomach, uncomfortable bloating, etc.
Not less common symptoms are flatulence with belching. They should pay attention if they don't go away in a few days (one or two days is considered a normal variant, more – no longer exists). Therefore, if these problems bother you any longer, do not delay going to the doctor.2. Dizziness and nausea
Pay attention to your health in the second half of the day, especially two hours after lunch (the main meal). By this time the digestive process already should be finished (if everything works correctly). If you feel fatigued, you feel dizzy, have a burp and a little nauseated, and it becomes “normal”, that is, you notice all these symptoms each day, there is a high probability of having problems with the gall bladder.3. Point back pain, stomach... and right-hand
heaviness in the abdomen, accompanied by pain on the right side of the back, slightly favoring the right hand, is also a typical symptoms of gallbladder diseases. In fact, as mentioned earlier, the gallbladder is located right under the liver, so if it's inflamed, “amazed” is the whole right side of the body. Pain have a number of features which are good to know: for example, sometimes the pain may be sharp and short (in the presence of stones in the gallbladder) can be very strong and last up to 15 minutes to let go and then reappear (for 12-15 hours). Even the pain may worsen at the time of inhalation and exhalation.
If the disease is already in “running” stage and in the gallbladder formed a lot of stones, the pain can be extremely strong, in this case, it is possible to feel in the blades.4. Pay attention to the urine and excrement
Yeah, that's not the most pleasant thing is to look at the food selection in our body, but it is important in order to determine the presence of a disease or prevent its occurrence (this can be done at least by the color of urine). If the urine is too light, and the feces is not quite formed and has a grayish tint, it could be a sign of problems with the gall bladder (these symptoms indicate insufficient amount of bile).
Very often people who have gallbladder disease, suffer from this unpleasant phenomenon, as diarrhea. And it is also necessary to take note of.5. Bad breath and increased body temperature
If you start to notice some discomfort in the oral cavity, there was an unpleasant smell and bitter taste, from which you can not get rid of, then pay attention to the duration of these phenomena. So it was a day or two? Then do not worry. However, if these symptoms persist 10 days or more, you should seek the advice of a doctor, especially should hurry, if you have a fever (even if it is not too high). 6. Jaundice (liver disease)
you May begin to notice that your skin color acquired a slightly yellowish tint? Or whites of the eyes also become yellow? In this case, doubt can not be. Do not hesitate, make an appointment to see a doctor. These are symptoms of jaundice or liver disease that occurs when the gallstones block the bile ducts, causing the bile back into the liver and from there enters the bloodstream and spreads throughout the body. This is a fairly serious disease, so pay attention to the above symptoms, to timely identify possible disease and take appropriate action. published
