What are Gallstones?

When the excess cholesterol present in the bile turns into crystals, these are called gallstones. The gallstones do not let the gallbladder empty properly. Gallstones are of different sizes and sometimes cause the inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis). If the gallstones form repeatedly, laparoscopic surgery is needed.

Causes

Excessive dieting

Obesity

Suffering from Diabetes

Weak digestive system due to old age

Excess estrogen from pregnancy or hormone replacement therapy

Treatment

Diagnosis

Physical examination, lab tests, and imaging tests are done to diagnose the gallstones. The doctor also asks about your diet to identify the reasons.

  • Blood tests to check the level of bilirubin to determine the liver functioning
  • Ultrasound of the abdomen and CT scan to analyze if the gallstones are present.
  • Endoplasmic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with the help of a small camera down to the gastrointestinal tract. This is done to check for the gallstone obstructing the bile duct.

Procedure

If all the remedies fail to serve the purpose of removing gallstones from the body, then the best-suited treatment is the laparoscopic gallbladder. In this treatment, a small incision is made through which a tiny video camera and surgical tools are inserted. Laparoscopic treatment is the best-recommended option. It offers faster recovery, only one incision is done and the surgery is minimally invasive. If you want to get rid of gallstones, then reach out to your nearest doctor in Lucknow.

Gallstone treatment in Lucknow

Gallstones affect one in ten adults in India. According to a statistic, of any 100 people walking down the street, 15 of them will suffer from gallstones. This number is increasing suddenly because more and more people are starting to get diagnosed. Gallstones can cause mild pain or diarrhoea, sometimes it also causes acute pain. So, before the screening become popular, people used to live with the symptoms throughout their life. Diets which are high in fat, starch and sugar contributes to the formation of gallstones. People who are over 60 years of age are more likely to develop gallstones than those younger. As people age, the body tends to secrete more cholesterol into the bile.

There was a survey done by a hospital in Lucknow in which 1,000 people participated. It showed that 14% of women and 11% of men had gallbladder stones. High cholesterol levels in bile, which is a digestive liquid stored in the gallbladder, accounts for nearly 80% of the cases. Low-fiber diet and obesity is also another cause. Being slightly overweight is also another cause for gallbladder stones. Obesity is a major risk factor mainly in women. According to the stats, 2 out of every 10 women are obese in Lucknow.

Gallstone surgery in Lucknow

As there are plenty of cases of obesity present in Lucknow. It needs to be treated as soon as possible. The other causes for gallstones are excess estrogen from pregnancy, hormone replacement therapy and birth control pills which increase the cholesterol levels in bile. Gallstones can often run in families, pointing to a possible genetic link. Now, the biggest problem is finding a good hospital at your nearby location. Lucknow has plenty of hospitals but the treatment or the surgery part is not up to the mark. There are cleaning issues in the clinics, the infrastructure is also bad making it difficult for the patient to undergo a surgery. Pristyn Care on the other hand offers seamless treatment. The clinics are in the various locations of Lucknow making it easier for the patient to commute. The doctor at Pristyn Care will also provide the diet chart and also Pristyn Care will give the follow up to the patients. It’s better to go to a specialist rather than consulting anyone because it’s about your health. Going to an inexperienced doctor will make matters even worse.
