Gallstone does not belong to any rare categories of disease. Most of the people, especially female are the victims of this disease in India. If you have already become the victim of this disease, then the only suggestion is to go for a laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery is the best way to get rid of this common digestive problem. There are certain benefits of this disease, like it is comparatively bloodless and patients get quickly recovered.
Like many other problems, gallbladder stones are caused by several things and habits. Here are some of its common causes:
Food-Habit, High fat diet or excessive fiber: Excessive fat or high cholesterol food in the regular diet can be a root cause of this disease. Bile dilutes intricate compositions of cholesterol. But when the liver produces more cholesterol than secreted bile, then the chance of occurrence of this disease increases. Excessive use of fat and spice increases cholesterol level in the blood, which rings the alarm bells for gallstones.
Obesity or Diabetes mellitus: Excessive calorie consumption leads to gallstones. Excessive weight or obese persons always have high cholesterol in their body. Even those people who are suffering from diabetes mellitus have chances to develop gallstone.
High bilirubin in the blood: Bilirubin is a compound which helps the liver to dissolve old red blood cells. But due to some disorders in the blood vessels, which generally occur due to cirrhosis of the liver, liver generates more bilirubin than its usual rate in blood. When the liver fails to break down those components, it turns into pigmented stones.
Family History: If there are any earlier cases of gallstone among any family member, it can trigger gallstones in a person.
Rapid weight loss: Rapid weight loss can cause gallstones in some cases. Mainly it happens to women as they are not properly conscious about their health and diet.
There are several other reasons like age factor, genital factors, use of various medications etc. That may lead to gallstones.
