The Link Between HIV And Cholecystitis?
I have cholecystitis. I searched the web for HealthReplies.com because of inflammation and blockage of the gallbladder. But, what concerns me is another cause of cholecystitis is AIDS, which is actually caused by HIV. Even though I never had free sex or using drugs. thank you
Hello Papin, Thank you for the question.
Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder, the organ in charge of storing bile which plays a role in the digestive process. This condition causes the sufferer to experience symptoms of upper right abdominal pain triggered by consumption of certain foods (usually fatty foods) which can spread to the back or right shoulder blade. In addition sufferers can also experience symptoms of nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite fever, and jaundice. Most cases of cholecystitis are caused by a blockage in the gallbladder which then causes an increase in pressure in the gallbladder and causes inflammation. This blockage is caused by gallstones, narrowing of the bile duct, or tumor. Apart from the blockage of the gallbladder, there are also other causes of cholecystitis such as sepsis, HIV / AIDS, malnutrition, diabetes, and burns.
It has been mentioned before that the cause of cholecystitis is largely due to blockage of the gallbladder. Although it can be caused by other things such as HIV / AIDS, it does not mean this condition is the cause of cholecystitis that you experience; the condition is one possible cause. If you do not take HIV risk actions and your doctor also does not consider the possibility of the examination carried out on you, then there is nothing you need to worry about the possibility of HIV infection. Just as the causes of headaches vary greatly, one of which is a brain tumor, but that does not mean the cause is always a brain tumor.
Please undergo the treatment recommended by the doctor and check yourself back at the doctor in accordance with the doctor's recommendations.
