No Gall Bladder.

I am listening to Nora Gedgaudas talk about using bile salts if you do not have a gall bladder because it is harder to digest fat soluble vitamins and get the other benefits of eating fat.

A year after my first child was born (so almost 5 years ago) after severe dieting my gall bladder crystallized and I had to have an emergency surgery to remove it.

Does anyone here not have a gall bladder? Is there anything important I should know?

Fat does not irritate my stomach.

I have no gall bladder either and haven't for several years due to a HUGE gall stone.

I have no problem with fat either. I did have bile salts show up in urine once in a physical, but that is the only gall bladder issue I have ever had since getting it out.

I do have a vit D and a B12 deficiency. Not sure those are related at all to GB but I tke supplements and shots and all is good now.

Interesting

Thank you for your input. Do you eat anything supplemental to behave like bile?

Nope. Don't seem to need it. No more tummy troubles since GB came out. Before GB surgery had a ton more problems.

Same here, no gallbladder and no issues. I don't take anything for it, and the fat doesn't bother me.

Thanks ladies

She was suggesting bile salts to help absorb fat soluble vitamins. I don't know that I want to go there yet though.

By the way, your progress is super motivating Mthergoos.
