Are you starving yourself to facilitate excessive and hasty weight loss? Do you know that your starvation diet can not only land you up to the hospital but also give you troubling gallstones that can disrupt the digestive system. Our renowned laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Manish Jindal comments that rapid and abrupt weight loss is as much as a culprit for blooming gallstones like obesity.
The question is why weight loss is the offender in this case and why we should be concerned about it. The reason being that when you follow a crash diet or to put it more clearly when you choose to starve yourself, your liver works overtime and releases extra cholesterol into the bile juice, further triggering gallstones.
If you are planning to lose weight, then instead of losing weight at one go, you should rather try to shed extra weights slowly but surely and that too by following your doctor’s suggested diet-plan. Some foods increase the advancement of gallstones, so it’s always wise to steer clear of them as much as possible. Eating a healthy diet lowers the possibility of gallstones formation.
We have perfectly established the fact that weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) influences gallstones. People who go for weight loss surgery can also become the victim of these symptomless stones. So it’s always better to have a detailed conversation with your doctor before undergoing bariatric surgery. A diet low in calories is not going to be your best friend when it comes to gallstones. The daily calorie intake for an average man should be no less than 2500 calories a month, for woman, the calorie count should be 2000 kcal in number. These numbers are just a rough estimation as your calorie count depends on other important factors like your age, height, weight, and lifestyle. For instance, if you live a physically active lifestyle, you’ll require more calories to function in your daily life.
We hope we were able to make you understand that crash or fad diets are not as good as it is claimed by certain people. If your gallstones need a gallstone operation, then give Varanasi Hospital the privilege to provide you with a permanent cure.
