Awaiting diagnosis of gallstones but I am struggling with pain and upset stomach. So confused as to what I can and cannot eat 😩
Confused: Awaiting diagnosis of... - British Liver Trust
British Liver Trust
I couldn’t eat anything! Lost 6 stone. Whatever you do don’t eat anything acidic or with any kind of spice at all. That put me in A&E twice! Only very plain food and drink X
Here is our general info on gallstones;
Can you discuss the best diet with your GP whilst you are waiting for diagnosis?
Hi there I’m in same position For 2 years drink plenty water to keep the bile thin , doctors told me to take buscopan for the pain , avoid greasy and high fat food like cream , pizza , fries , keep fat content low it stops the gallbladder contracting x
Fatty & creamy & spicy each triggered mine. But very occasionally I would eat everything I loved & missed in one sitting & had a hot water bottle & tablets ready for the consequences.
I have had them for years. Avoid fat, but a teaspoonful of organic olive oil in apple juice daily keeps it moving. Vegetable soups in the blender will keep you going when it's bad. I have invested in a juicer for when it's bad. I use a homeopathic remedy which always helps. Good luck.
I'm in this position at the moment. Main thing is to keep it very low fat. I make sure that whatever I eat is under 3g of fat per 100g and that keeps it a bit under control. Have had it for 6 months now
Blending makes it liquid and easier to digest. Adding ginger and garlic helps with any infection.
