The causes of gall stones and its treatment
Gallbladder disease risk has recently been linked to the use of drospirenone, a fourth-generation progestin found in oral contraceptives. We carried out a study to evaluate the severity of this risk in comparison to other oral contraceptive formulations. Women are much more likely to develop gallbladder disease. In fact, compared to men, we have a two to three times higher risk of developing gallstones and other conditions related to the gallbladder. The question of “do birth control pills cause gallbladder problems” arises in the minds of many women given that the vast majority of women use or have used birth control pills at some point. In this article, I’ll explain what a gallbladder is, what it does, and what it looks like when it’s not working properly. In addition, I’ll give you some natural remedies as we discuss the effects of birth control, estrogen, and thyroid health on your gallbladder. A pouch called the gallbladder is located below the liver. Its duty is to store the bile the liver produces. Consider it a designer purse for your liver. It is an accessory for the liver. Bile is created by your liver and kept in the gallbladder for later use. Your gallbladder releases bile into your intestines during meals to aid in the digestion of fats and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Bile acid is antimicrobial and protects the health of your small intestine against microbes that shouldn’t be there in addition to assisting with the absorption of fat and fat soluble vitamins.
