what to avoid when you have cholelithiasis?

fatty food, nuts, salads.chocolate

Avoid fatty foods the most so you don't have to get your gall bladder removed. Meh to people who copy and paste.

avoid fatty foods, and onions will cause severe pain...avoid overeating and drink plenty of water.

i had my gallbladder removed because of this. now all fat from foods go right through me. and get a gallstone that blocks you up, you will regret eating anything at all....you will vomit bile for hours, and hospitals do NOT consider this an emergency. you will have to wait in the waiting room just like everyone else

Diet tips
- A diet to prevent Cholecystitis should be low in fat and high in fibre. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, cereals and drink plenty of water. Fibre binds with bile in the digestive tract and promotes its production and removal from the body.
- Eat moderate amounts of low fat dairy products, lean meat and fish.
- Limit the intake of foods which are processed and high in sugar and saturated fats.
- Avoid all fried foods, spicy foods, margarine, soft drinks, commercial oils, chocolate and refined carbohydrates.
- Bitter foods (such as endives, chicory and the outer leaves of cos lettuce) stimulate bile secretion from the gallbladder and aid digestion.
- Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar may help emulsify fats.

Cholelithiasis is the presence of one or more calculi (gallstones) in the gallbladder. In developed countries, about 10% of adults and 20% of people > 65 yr have gallstones. Gallstones tend to be asymptomatic. The most common symptom is biliary colic; gallstones do not cause dyspepsia or fatty food intolerance. More serious complications include cholecystitis; biliary tract obstruction (from stones in the bile ducts or choledocholithiasis), sometimes with infection (cholangitis); and gallstone pancreatitis. Diagnosis is usually by ultrasonography. If cholelithiasis causes symptoms or complications, cholecystectomy is necessary.
Although you can't entirely prevent gallstones from forming, you may be able to lower your risk by following these suggestions:
* Maintain a healthy body weight. If you need to lose weight, experts recommend losing no more than 1/2 to 2 pounds a week.
* Avoid crash diets or a very low intake of calories — less than 800 calories a day.
* Be active. Make sure that you exercise regularly.
* Choose a low-fat, high-fiber diet that emphasizes fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Reduce the amount of animal fat, butter, margarine, mayonnaise and fried foods you eat.

Medical Care

Treatment for simple cholelithiasis is symptomatic.
One option for nonsurgical management of gallstone disease is the use of ursodeoxycholic acid. One study demonstrated a 56% reduction in biliary pain after 3 months of therapy and a mean dissolution of gallstones in 59% of cases after 12 months of treatment with 10 mg/kg/d of ursodeoxycholic acid. The primary disadvantage with this approach is the incidence of recurrent gallstones, approximately 25% within 5 years. The nonsurgical option is currently only indicated for patients either unfit or unwilling to undergo surgical intervention and has not been recommended in the pediatric population.
The number of pediatric cholecystectomies in symptomatic patients has increased.
Removal of a stone in an asymptomatic patient is not standard practice.
Admission may be required for observation with nasogastric tube placement.

Surgical Care

The number of gallbladders removed in patients with symptomatic stones is increasing.
Removal of the gallbladder in those who are asymptomatic is not the standard treatment.
Laparoscopic cholecystectomies are now being routinely performed in children and are accepted as the criterion standard for the treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy with intraoperative cholangiography has demonstrated promise as an alternative to ERCP in patients with obstructive common bile duct stones (choledocholithiasis).
Endoscopic cholecystotomy has been demonstrated to be ameliorating.

Consultation with a general surgeon is appropriate in symptomatic patients with stones and evidence of cholecystitis.

A decrease in the consumption of fatty foods and controlled reduction in weight may be effective in some patients.

Leitzmann et al have demonstrated in a prospective cohort study that symptomatic gallstones in men were reduced by approximately 20% with increased exercise. This reduction may be extrapolated to the pediatric population.
