The gallbladder is one of the most important parts of the human digestive system. It plays a major role in the digestion of foods that we ingest. When this organ becomes filled with toxic buildup and gallstones, one of the first symptoms to be noticed is digestive problems. The gallbladder is a receptacle that is used to store bile that is necessary for the digestion of fat. When you take in any food that contains fat, the food travels to your small intestine. The gallbladder then sends a signal to the gallbladder to release a squirt of bile. The bile helps to emulsify the fat you have taken and this will break down the fat and make it easy for your body to absorb fats into your system. Yes, this organ is small, but its role is big and without it, a domino effect takes place that sometimes may similar to those experienced with individuals with gall bladder pain.
There is no proof that indicates that the condition of gallstones is hereditary Rather that saying the gallbladder problems are somehow transmitted from one generation to another via genes, it makes more sense to say that you have a predisposition for families to eat the same types of diets that are linked with gall stone symptoms.
It is known that women have the condition more often than their male counterparts, and Hispanic women and Native American women have the condition more often than other races or nationalities. People that have reached the age of forty or more likely to experience the symptoms of this condition and pregnant women frequently have the problem. People who are obese suffer with more instances of this condition but on the other hand if you lose weight too rapidly you will also put yourself at greater risk of suffering from these symptoms. Diabetes and this condition seem to go hand in hand.
