Gallstones are crystallized components of the bile and can appear as grits (small stones) or larger stones. They can arise in the gallbladder or in the bile duct. Depending on the location, a distinction is made between gallbladder stones and bile duct stones.
The gall bladder is the storage organ for bile (approx. 700 ml daily) which is produced by the liver. Bile acids (in the bile) promote the digestion of fats and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

Risk factors:

  • genetic predispositions

  • Gender (women are more often affected, from the age of 40 the risk increases)

  • Overweight / obesity

  • high energy, fat and sugar intake as well as a low fiber content

  • Pregnancies

  • Use of female sex hormones (as a contraceptive or hormone replacement therapy during menopause)

  • low-fiber, high-cholesterol diet

  • Metabolic diseases such as diabetes ( diabetes mellitus )

  • increased blood lipid levels (lipid metabolism disorders)

  • inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease

  • Bile acid loss syndrome (disease with a relevant bile acid deficiency, for example after removal of a certain section of the intestine in Crohn's disease patients)

  • Taking certain antibiotics

  • Liver diseases

  • Bile duct infections with bacteria or parasites

  • Anemia as a result of increased breakdown of the red blood cells (haemolytic anemia) - an abundance of bilirubin is produced, which can ultimately lead to the formation of gallstones

  • extremely low-calorie diet, very rapid weight loss (loss of> 1.5 kg / week)

  • a belly-accentuated fat base regardless of the body mass index

There are 2 types of stones / gravel:

  • Cholesterol stones: These consist mainly of cholesterol (make up about 80%)

  • Bilirubin (pigment) stones: They consist of a cholesterol core to which bilirubin has attached.  (make up about 20%)

Symptoms: (individually different)

  • no or less severe symptoms, depending on the location and size of the gallstones

  • Pain in the right upper abdomen, for example, is possible

  • Severe biliary colic, inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), biliary obstruction with subsequent inflammation of the bile duct ( cholangitis ), jaundice (jaundice) and / or inflammation of other organs.

Why is nutritional therapy important?

Nutritional therapy helps you prevent gallstones. If you have gallstones, an appropriate diet can lead to biliary colic or inflammation of the gallbladder  impede. Gallstones that do not cause problems are usually not removed. If the stones are noticeable through recurring colic, it is advisable to remove the gallbladder completely.

The aim is to supply all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are important to you, energy and protein in the measure that your body is optimally supplied with. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed. If you are overweight / obese, weight reduction is recommended, which lowers the risk of gallstones. An anti-inflammatory diet can improve your health. A bile diet as it was often practiced in the past no longer exists.

Possible consequences:

  1. Inflammation of the pancreas (acute pancreatitis)

  2. Injury to the gallbladder wall with leakage of bile into the abdomen and resulting peritonitis

  3. increased risk of gallbladder and bile duct cancer

Classification of your weight - definition and classification of weight in relation to height.

Special percentile curves apply to children and adolescents; the BMI cannot simply be used here.

BMI and interpretation: BMI: body mass index. Formula: Body weight in kg : (body height in m) 2

Underweight: <18.5

Normal weight: 18.5 - 24.9

Overweight = pre-obesity: 25-29.9

Obesity grade I: 30 - 34.9

Obesity grade II: 35-39.9

Obesity grade III:> 40 = per magna

Nutritional therapy

  • Anti-inflammatory nutrition as a basis, individually tailored to you

  • Holistic therapy - do you have any comorbidities that need to be taken into account during the consultation?

  • Overall fat selection, how should it be designed

  • How many animal foods (e.g. meat products, milk and dairy products, cheese, fish products, eggs) are recommended?

  • What do I have to look out for when choosing animal foods?

  • How can I counteract inflammatory processes through diet?

  • Body weight: Weight reduction is recommended if you are overweight / obese.

  • In the case of insulin resistance and lipid metabolism disorders, also treat them with nutritional therapy

  • Avoid micronutrient deficiencies and mineral deficiencies & possibly counteract them with nutrient preparations

  • Prevent protein deficiency

  • Which nutrients do I need in which ratio?

  • Get enough fiber (> 30 g / day) through natural foods, possibly fiber substitution

  • Sufficient fluid: total fluid per day: 30 - 35 ml per kg body weight and day. Attention, this is not just a drinking liquid. The liquid from food (approx. 500 - 800 ml) must still be subtracted from this, so that an amount of approx. 1.3 - 2 l of drinking liquid is created.
