Biliary lithiasis is one of the most common biliary pathothogy with a reported prevalence of approximately 6%-12%. The pathogenesis of biliary lithiasis is complex and a multifactorial process involving factors which affect the bile content and bile flow. Hypersaturation of bile with cholesterol and biliary stasis have been shown to be crucial factors in development of biliary stones. Hypothyroidism has a worldwide population prevalence of 4%-5%. It leads to decrease in liver cholesterol…

Research Article Evaluation of thyroid profile in biliary tract stones
Hypothyroidism is more common in the choledocholithiasis patients as compared to cholelithiasis group, with female predominance and with subclinical variant in maximum No.
Increased prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism in common bile duct stone patients.
Subclinical hypothyroidism is more common in the CBD stone patients, compared with nongallstone controls, supporting the hypothesis that hypothy thyroidism might play a role in the forming of CBD stones.
Bile duct stone procedures are more frequent in patients with hypothyroidism. A large, registry-based, cohort study in Finland
It is hypothesize that CBD stone formation begins during the untreated period and develops/matures even after the medication has been initiated, raising the question of the efficiency of treatment in this respect.
The Underlying Mechanisms: How Hypothyroidism Affects the Formation of Common Bile Duct Stones—A Review
The authors conclude that when treating patients with CBD stones or microlithiasis, clinicians should be aware of the possible hypothyroid background.
Prevalence of previously undiagnosed hypothyroidism in patients with cholelithiasis in a tertiary care center, North-East India
Although a low prevalence of hypothyroidism was found in this study, it is evident that subclinical and borderline subclinical hypothyroxin were significantly more common, compared with the clinical hyp Timothyroidism and with increasing age there was increase in its prevalence, so it is recommended that S-TSH level should be measured for every patient with cholelithiasis older than 50 years.
It was observed that there was more prevalence of hypothyroidism in female patients with gallstone disease in age group of 15-60 years than in controls.
Association between common bile duct stones and treated hypothyroidism.
The 11% prevalence of previously diagnosed hypothyroidism in the common bile duct stone patients of over 60 years of age suggests all patients with common biles duct stones be screened for current thyroid dysfunction.
Epidemiology of Gallbladder Disease: Cholelithiasis and Cancer
Gallstone disease in childhood, once considered rare, has become increasingly recognized with similar risk factors as those in adults, particularly obesity.

The aim of this study was to investigate biliary dynamics in relation to altered thyroid gland function in rat, a rodent without a gallbladder and concludes that the bile flow to duodenum is reduced in hypothyreosis and enhanced in hyperthyreosis.
Incidence of Choledocholithiasis in Gallstone Disease in Eastern Zone of India: A Single Centre Study
Incidence of choledocholithiasis is in increasing trend and is more common in females in between 40-49 years age group and Obesity is the commonest risk factor.
