The gallbladder is a pear shaped organ with a hollow structure, positioned on the right side of the body, below the liver, next to the pancreas. It is a part of the human digestive system, and is where bile is stored and concentrated before it is released into the small intestine. Before a meal, the gallbladder is full of bile and after meals, it is empty and flat. When a signal triggers the gallbladder, it squeezes stored bile into the small intestine via ducts. The gallbladder is an organ at a risk of developing stones (Cholelithiasis).
Stones can be due to excessive cholesterol, bilirubin, bile salts or deposits of digestive fluid, and can be of any size, ranging from the size of a sand particle to the size of a golf ball. People can have one gallstone or several gallstones at a time. A person who develops gallstones needs to seek help from a clinic or hospital providing gallbladder stone treatment in Delhi.
Factors that can increase gallbladder stone risk are being over 40 years of age, being overweight, sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, eating a high fat and high cholesterol diet, family history of gallstones, diabetes, liver problems etc. It is believed that gallbladder stones are more common in North India as compared to other regions.
