Gallstones
 
Standard Definition

Gallstones are formed in the gallbladder, primarily of cholesterol. They are commonly associated with bile that contains excessive cholesterol, a deficiency of other substances in bile (bile acids and lecithin), or a combination of these factors. The attacks frequently occur when gallstones block the bile duct.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Studies have found that gallstones are significantly associated with dietary factors. For example, vegetarian diets are associated with a low risk of gallstones, whereas diets high in animal fats increase risk. Constipation has also been linked to the risk of forming gallstones, indicating that proper flow of bile, and elimination of bile products out through the bowel, is essential for prevention.
