Side Effects If The Bile Breaks?
Hello Akikorei, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Rupture of the gallbladder can cause inflammation of the stomach lining or in medical terms peritonitis. This condition is an emergency condition that requires immediate surgery and antibiotics through a vein. Peritonitis itself can cause sequences of other more severe conditions such as extensive infections (sepsis), where sepsis itself can cause failure of many organs in the body, to conditions that are life-threatening and cause death.
Rupture of the gallbladder itself is generally a complication of gallstone disease and inflammation of the bile ducts. Here is a link regarding more info about gallstone complications.
Gallstones can come from cholesterol, blood pigment, and a mixture of both. Most patients with gall bladder will not experience symptoms, unless these stones clog the end of the bile duct so that after the patient eats especially fatty ones, when the gallbladder contracts, a pinching will occur so that it causes colic pain (sudden and severe pain for several minutes ). Risk factors for patients with gallstones are: age> 40 years, women, obesity, women who have given birth (increased cholesterol levels due to increased estrogen). Gallstones themselves can cause inflammation of the bile ducts (cholecystitis) (accompanied by symptoms of fever, nausea and upper right abdominal pain). If gallstones are large enough, gallstones can suppress larger channels and inhibit the release of metabolic waste products processed from the liver as a result of cholestasis which is marked by the body becoming yellow, urine colored like tea, pale stools such as putty. It is better to immediately go to the nearest health service if you have experienced these symptoms. The surgeon can carry out definitive evaluation and treatment if there are indications. If there are indications, the doctor may carry out several investigations such as liver ultrasound, up to CT scans, and blood tests to assess liver function and assess whether there is a bile duct obstruction or not. To prevent this, it is recommended to maintain ideal body weight, exercise 3-5 times / week @ 30 minutes, avoid saturated fat, replace birth control methods that contain estrogen with non-hormonal birth control methods or injections / birth control pills that do not contain estrogen.
Thus our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good night.
