In this age of looking at the face and body, weight loss has always been a hot topic of communication among young women. Some people even use extreme dieting methods to maintain good body shape. Long-term dieting can get a good figure and may also cause many diseases, and gallstones are one of them.
Bile is produced by the liver. Generally, the bile acids, bilirubin, phospholipids, cholesterol, and calcium, potassium and other elements in the bile are dissolved in the bile. When the bile acid, cholesterol and phospholipids are imbalanced or the bile fluid dynamics are changed At this time, precipitation is easy to occur, and stones are formed.
Food can stimulate the secretion of bile, shrink the gallbladder, and promote the excretion of cholesterol with bile. People who often diet, the shrinking ability of the gallbladder gradually weakens, and it is easy to cause bile thickening, so that the proportion of bile components will change to form cholesterol crystals, and stones will form over time.
Women are 2-4 times more likely to develop gallstones than men. According to clinical statistics, 63% of patients with cholesterol stones are women and 37% are men.
Pregnancy can affect the onset of gallstones. The older the pregnancy or the higher the number of pregnancies, the higher the incidence of gallstones. In addition, obesity, irregular diet, and inappropriate medication can also cause gallstones.
The treatment of gallstones mainly depends on surgery. If you do not want to be stabbed, you should pay attention to your diet. Although obesity is not good, excessive dieting is also harmful to health. Not only dieting, irregular meals, and skipping breakfast can lead to the accumulation of bile internal sterols and the formation of stones.
Regular meals: If the interval between meals is too long, it will reduce the blocking time of bile acid enterohepatic circulation, leading to increased cholesterol. In addition, proper consumption of lipids and proteins can help stimulate gallbladder emptying and prevent bile stasis.
