Gallstones

Can I control the frequency of gallstone attacks?

A Answers (1)

  • Yes, you can help to control the frequency of gallstone attacks with change in diet. The only definitive treatment is surgery. However, there are other dietary and medical ways to manage gallstones. A high fiber, low fat diet with lots of water intake can help. Losing weight slowly without fasting has shown to be helpful as well. Daily CCK has shown to prevent acalculous stones. Finally, there is oral dissolution therapy available in the form of ursodiol or chenodiol.
