How To Treat Gallstones Without Surgery?
Does the healing of gallstones have to be operated? What can be done naturally? For what foods are recommended for sufferers of gallstones?
Hello Ambarwati, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Gallstone / cholelithiasis is the formation of stones in the bile or bile ducts that cause blockages in the pathway so that bile can not be disposed of properly. This stone can form because of many things, but the most often is due to high cholesterol.
Signs and symptoms of gallstones are very diverse and various kinds. That was caused by the size of the stone and the location of the blockage. At the beginning of the formation of gallstones does not cause symptoms, but the greater the stone will cause symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, loss of appetite, etc. This complaint is often misunderstood as heartburn. Yellow complaints can arise depending on the location of the blockage.
In establishing the diagnosis, the doctor needs to confirm with supporting examinations such as abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI if necessary.
Handling of gallstones itself can be done based on the size of the stone and how heavy the complaint. Operative action is the best choice in handling these gallstones.
Responding to your question about the natural way, until now there is no literature that discusses it. Another possible option is to use drugs, but the stone size must be small. But this treatment is very rarely done because of the following things, namely:
It takes a long time to dissolve gallstones around 6-12 months, and it doesn't necessarily work.
Gallstones can reappear after the consumption of the drug is stopped.
Can only be used for gallstones caused by cholesterol.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid some foods such as coconut milk, oily foods, containing peanut sauce, foods that contain butter, etc.
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption.
Control your doctor regularly to monitor your gallstones if surgery has not been done.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you :)
