Individuals with gallstones may experience various gastrointestinal symptoms and are also at risk of developing acute or chronic cholecystitis. Cholecystectomy is the most frequently recommended conventional treatment for symptomatic gallstones. Bile acids (ursodeoxycholic acid or chenodeoxycholic acid) are also used in some cases to dissolve radiolucent stones, but these drugs can cause… Expand

TLDR
Identification and avoidance of allergenic foods frequently relieves symptoms of gallbladder disease, although it does not dissolve gallstones, and nutritional supplements that might help prevent gallstones include vitamin C, soy lecithin, and iron. Expand

TLDR
Non-veg diet as a rich source of heme iron and supplementation of iron from drinking water source may led to pigmented gallstone formation. Expand

TLDR
Dietary intervention and nutrition treatment show promise to avoid cholelithiasis and benefits in bariatric surgery, cholecystectomy, and choleCystitis. Expand
Cholelithiasis: Presentation and Management.
TLDR

Clinical and nutritional study on gallstone disease in Japan.
TLDR
A study on black stone was carried out with an infrared spectroscopic analysis and scanning electron microscopic observation, and a new classification of this type of stones is proposed, and it was considered that the increase of the incidence of cholesterol gallstones was related to the increases of the fat intake and the decrease of the crude fiber intake. Expand
The Effect of Long-Term Intake of cis Unsaturated Fats on the Risk for Gallstone Disease in Men
TLDR
During 14 years of follow-up, high compared with low intakes of both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids were associated with fewer self-reported cases of symptomatic gallstone disease in middle-aged and older men. Expand
Long-term intake of trans-fatty acids and risk of gallstone disease in men.
TLDR
It is suggested that a higher intake of trans-fatty acids modestly increases risk of gallstone disease, adding to the concern that partial hydrogenation of vegetable oils to form shortening and margarine can lead to adverse health effects. Expand
Frequent nut consumption and decreased risk of cholecystectomy in women.
TLDR
In women, frequent nut consumption is associated with a reduced risk of cholecystectomy, and in analyses examining consumption of peanuts and other nuts separately, both wereassociated with a lower risk of CholecyStectomy. Expand
Coffee intake is associated with lower risk of symptomatic gallstone disease in women.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Metabolic studies have shown that coffee affects several hepatobiliary processes that are involved in cholesterol lithogenesis. We previously showed that coffee drinking wasExpand
Dietary protein and the risk of cholecystectomy in a cohort of US women: the Nurses' Health Study.
TLDR
It is suggested that increased consumption of vegetable protein in the context of an energy-balanced diet can reduce the risk of cholecystectomy in women. Expand
Iron deficiency enhances cholesterol gallstone formation.
TLDR
It is concluded that iron deficiency plays a previously unrecognized role in the pathogenesis of cholesterol gallstone formation in women. Expand
Diet, physical activity, and gallstones--a population-based, case-control study in southern Italy.
TLDR
It is suggested that a sedentary lifestyle and a diet rich in animal fats and refined sugars and poor in vegetable fats and fibers are significant risk factors for gallstone formation. Expand
Dietary carbohydrates and glycaemic load and the incidence of symptomatic gall stone disease in men
TLDR
It is suggested that a high intake of carbohydrate, glycaemic load, and Glycaemic index increases the risk of symptomatic gall stone disease in men, adding to the concern that low fat high carbohydrate diets may not be an optimal dietary recommendation. Expand
Effect of vegetarianism on development of gall stones in women.
TLDR
The importance of age and obesity to determine the prevalence of gall stone was confirmed, and a dietary factor associated with vegetarianism may prevent this common condition. Expand
