Hello, good night Iin ...
Gallstones can cause an increase in some laboratory blood values such as direct bilirubin and Gamma Globulin Transferase (Gamma GT), and indeed can not be accompanied by an increase in the value of liver / liver / liver function (SGOT SGPT). The formation of gallstones is not directly caused by diabetes, but the two diseases can be interconnected. Diabetics, especially type II diabetes (one of which is characterized by adulthood), usually tend to be overweight or obese, where obesity itself is a risk factor for gallstones. Obesity can increase expenditure cholesterol into the gall bladder, which then over time will accumulate and form stones in the bladder or bile duct. In addition, diabetics also tend to have high triglyceride levels, which is a cholesterol fat that can trigger gallstone formation.
In general, if gallstones do not cause symptoms, then medical treatment does not need to be done because gallstones can come out together with urine, but if there are symptoms (for example upper right abdominal pain), then generally doctors will do medical treatment, both in the form of drugs medicine (on small gallstones) and surgery (on large gallstones). For the treatment of gallstones experienced by your father, this should be consulted again with a specialist in internal medicine who treats your father, because to uphold the best treatment decisions, it is necessary to consider various aspects, such as the general condition of the patient, the characteristics of the gallstones experienced, the history of previous treatment , etc., so that only doctors who examine your father directly can decide the best treatment for your father at this time.
Foods that need to be avoided for patients who have gallstones are foods that contain high saturated fat, such as coconut milk, oily foods such as fried foods, peanut-flavored foods, and foods that contain butter. No less important to prevent the weight of gallstones owned is to avoid alcoholic drinks, maintain ideal body weight, and control diabetes.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
