Gall stones affect about 10% of the population in developed countries.
Gall stones consist of bile pigments, calcium and/or cholesterol, and form due to fat soluble waste, toxins and.or bile stagnating in the gallbladder. This stagnant 'sludge' accumulates and solidas may form and become gravel and/or stones.
Most people with gallstones never develop symptoms, but if they do, some common signs and symptoms may include:
* Digestive disorders due to fats being inadequately broken and absorbed. E.g. nausea, vomiting, flatulence, poor appetite, constipation and/or loose stools
* Pain immediately following meals, especially fatty meals
* Pain in the right upper abdomen, which may often radiate to the right shoulder blade and back
* Stools that are clay-coloured and/float
