My The Gallstone Elimination Report Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of websites have asked me about this ebook, which is being promoted quite widely across the Internet. So I ordered a copy myself to figure out what all the fuss was about.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Slow and steady weight loss of no more than 2 pounds per week is the safest way to lose weight. Too rapid a weight loss can cause you to lose muscle mass rather than fat tissue and also can increase your chances of developing other health problems, such as gallstones, gout, and nutrient deficiencies. Making long-term improvements in your diet combined with exercising more is the best way to lose weight and keep it off.

Clinical Presentation

Abdominal pain is the principle symptom of peptic ulcer and is most commonly felt in the epigastrium. The quality of the discomfort, its pattern, and its associated symptoms such as vomiting may vary from patient to patient. In fact, the sensitivity and specificity of characteristic epigastric discomfort in predicting the presence of a peptic ulcer is actually quite low. Other possibilities in the differential diagnosis of ulcer pain include gastroesophageal reflux disease, angina, nonulcer dyspepsia, small and large intestinal conditions, gallstones, and pancreatic disorders. Furthermore, patients (especially those taking NSAIDs) frequently present with complications such as GI bleeding after a silent course and no pain. Nonetheless, there are classic symptomatic presentations in some patients that are worthy of mention. For example, the classic description of duodenal ulcer pain is a burning or gnawing sensation in the epigastrium, which characteristically occurs IV2-3 hours after...

Enterohepatic Helicobacter Species

H. hepaticus is the best characterized enterohepatic Helicobacter species (for review see ref. 1). H. hepaticus causes subclinical infection in resistant strains of mice, mild to moderate typhlitis in susceptible strains of mice, and severe typhlocolitis that resembles idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease in mutant lines of mice with altered immune function. In some strain backgrounds, this severe inflammatory bowel disease-like condition progresses to adenocarcinoma (27). In susceptible strains, H. hepaticus also causes chronic hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma, particularly in males (for review see ref. 11). Most recently, H. hepaticus has been shown to cause cholesterol gallstone formation in C57L mice fed a cholelithogenic diet (28). H. hepaticus, like H. muridarum, possesses an active urease enzyme. Unlike H. muridarum, H. hepaticus lacks periplasmic fibers. Instead, it is a simple spiral-shaped rod with sheathed polar flagella. With the exception of Helicobacter aurati...

Obesity Therapeutics Prospects and Perspectives

Obesity is often mischaracterized as a cosmetic, or life style issue when in fact it is a devastating disease with tremendous health and financial consequences. In the US alone, it has been estimated that there are greater than 300,000 deaths per year (2). This distressing effect on life expectancy is largely related directly to the life threatening co-morbidities of obesity such as non-insulin-dependent diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and some forms of cancer (3). The less lethal comorbidities associated with obesity include gallstones, osteoarthritis, degenerative arthritis, and apnea. The financial consequences of obesity can be measured in multiple ways as a total cost to society (direct and indirect), estimated percent of total medical cost, and direct value of obesity related medications (4-6). Whichever parameter is chosen to measure the financial impact of obesity, the cost is highly significant to our society.

Opened ampulla and common wall

Once a decision has been made to proceed with surgical relief of the obstructed bile duct, the choice of the appropriate operative procedure revolves around whether a resection is being done and the natural history of the problem causing the stricture. In this regard, the ultimate fate of the duodenum and lower bile duct figures prominently. By and large, resections of the bile duct are reconstructed with a Roux-en-Y cholehepatico-jejunostomy, or a hepaticojejunostomy if the anastomosis is up in the liver. Although it seems logical to bypass all benign strictures, a stricture situated high in the bile duct may be best handled by resection. The anastomosis is then performed in normal tissue above the scar. The reason is that a resection sometimes provides better exposure of the structures the surgeon wishes to preserve (portal vein and hepatic artery) while seeking more normal bile duct tissue. Conversely, benign strictures in the distal bile duct are often most expeditiously dealt...

Gallbladder And Biliary Imaging

Ultrasound and cholescintigraphy are the preferred imaging methods for the routine evaluation and diagnosis of gallbladder pathology and each offers unique advantages and limitations. Ultrasound is used most frequently for several reasons. First, the typical right upper quadrant ultrasound exam can be performed quickly and takes about 15 min for the experienced technician to complete. Second, other abdominal organs such as the liver, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen can be visualized and other sources of pain and symptoms can be diagnosed when the gallbladder is normal. Third, the possibility of other gallbladder pathology, cancer for example, may be evaluated. Finally, ultrasound can identify gallstones, thickening of the gallbladder wall, pericholecystic fluid and tenderness when the ultrasound probe presses down directly over the gallbladder (sonographic Murphy sign). This constellation of ultrasound findings is highly sensitive and specific for the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis...

The Influence of Dietary Fats on Blood Cholesterol Levels and Distribution of Fatty Acids

Linoleic, which is the most common form of PUFA. Linoleic acid is effective in reducing blood cholesterol concentrations and has been evaluated in numerous studies.29,34 While some reduction occurs in LDL-cholesterol, most of the reduction occurs in HDL-cholesterol and VLDL-cholesterol. The United States diet has increased its linoleic content from 4 to about 7 in recent years and it has been associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, there are concerns about raising the levels further. Linoleic intakes have been associated with several possible detrimental effects. These include suppression of immune responses, promotion of carcinogenesis, increased susceptibility of LDL to oxidation, decreases in HDL levels, and formation of gallstones.36-40 The omega-6 category of PUFA includes fatty acids in fish oils which are eicosopentaenoic acid, EPA, and docosa-hexanoic acid, DHA. These fatty acids constitute approximately 25 of the total fatty acids in fish oils....

Adipokines and Steatosis

Reductase, upregulating the activities of both sterol 27-hydroxylase and cholesterol 7a-hydroxylase, and diminishing the cholesterol fraction bound to VLDL by limiting TG supply (78). Lowered leptin signaling might be responsible for the increase in the prevalence of cholesterol gallstones in obese patients compared with the general population (79).

Disorders of the Gallbladder the Pancreas and the Liver

Gallstones The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped sac beneath the liver where bile is stored and concentrated. Gallstones can form when an imbalance in its chemical composition causes the bile to harden into solid pieces. If the bile contains too much cholesterol, a tiny particle can gradually grow into a gallstone as more and more material hardens around it. Cholesterol stones are the most common type of gallstone. Another type of gallstone, a pigment stone, is small, dark, and made of bilirubin (the major pigment in bile). There may be one or more gallstones in various sizes, from the size of a grain of sand to the size of a golf ball. Gallstones Gallstones are solid lumps, consisting mostly of cholesterol, that form in the gallbladder. In some cases, a small gallstone passes on its own out of the gallbladder through the bile duct and out of the body in stool, causing no pain. But if a large stone blocks the cystic duct, which causes intense pain, both the duct and the gallbladder...

Hemobilia

Hemobilia is bleeding into the upper GI tract from the biliary tree. The most important causes include hepatic trauma, hepatic aneurysm, iatrogenic liver injury e.g., liver biopsy, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) , tumor erosion into the biliary tree, and gallstones. Diagnosis is suspected in patients who present with jaundice, right upper quadrant pain, upper GI hemorrhage, and laboratory evidence of cholesthasis. The initial evaluation of suspected hemobilia should include esophago-duodenoscopy (EGD), preferably with a side-viewing duodenoscope because blood is observed emanating from the papilla of Vater in 1040 of cases. The precise cause is identified by angiography. Treatment depends on the specific cause of hemobilia and often involves embolization of the bleeding end vessel or surgery (10).

Childhood obesity

There has been a threefold increase in childhood obesity in the United States in the past three decades (12). Coinciding with this increase has been an increase in prevalence for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, gallbladder disease, hyperlipidemia, orthopedic complications, sleep apnea, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis in children. Obese children are predisposed to adult obesity and have increased risks for adult obesity-related diseases (19). Approximately 30 of obese adults became obese during childhood, and 80 of obese adolescents become obese adults (20).

Early Complications

Although, complications such as pancreatitis, or bowel perforations from cautery injuries can occur after cholecystectomy, bile leaks and bile duct obstruction are the notorious perioperative procedure-related complications. The most threatening morbidity of cholecystectomy comes from damaging the main bile duct. Patients who present with abdominal pain, fever, chills, leukocytosis, or jaundice should be evaluated for either of these complications. Liver function tests and ultrasound are chosen to determine if the etiology is caused by biliary obstruction or leak. A bile leak on ultrasound will manifest as a fluid collection in the right upper quadrant while an obstruction is diagnosed by dilated intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts. Whereas in-depth management of complications following cholecystectomy is beyond the scope of this chapter, several tests and procedures are undertaken in each of these circumstances. Abdominal bile collections are drained percutaneously under...

Late Complications

The possibility of a relationship between increased colon cancer risk and gallstone disease has been entertained for years. It is believed that the same environmental, dietary and genetic factors that predispose to gallstones may also increase risk for colorectal cancer. The postcholecystectomy state itself, however, does not appear to change the risk of colon cancer (23). Patients who have persistent pain after cholecystectomy often did not have histories consistent with symptomatic gallstone disease in the first place, even though they had gallstones on ultrasound. In such patients, there has probably been a failure of proper patient selection rather than a complication of the operation. Overall, cholecystectomy is a very reliable and safe procedure. Moreover, the addition of laparoscopy has significantly reduced postoperative pain and shortened the recovery period.

Cost

(surgeon, anesthesia, and consultant fees) are approx 3600. However, the overall costs for the management of symptomatic gallstones appears to have been increased by this technology because a greater percentage of patients and physicians have been opting for surgical management than they did when open surgery was their only option (27).

Gallbladder Cancer

There have been a limited number of studies of gallbladder cancer and obesity most have been relatively small, as gallbladder cancer is quite rare, especially in men. However, these few studies have consistently found elevated risks of about twofold (Table 3) (3,37,96,132,155-158). One study found a greater than fourfold increase in risk for the highest category of BMI (> 30) in a Japanese cohort, but only among women (36). Obesity is thought to operate indirectly to increase the risk of gallbladder cancer by increasing the risk of gallstones, which in turn, causes chronic inflammation and increased risk of biliary tract cancer (134).

Short Bowel Syndrome

Patients with SBS not only have an inadequate absorptive surface but also have an increased intestinal transit time. These patients have an elevated serum gastrin level and the excess gastric acid that is produced exacerbates the diarrhea (1,8). The mechanism for the hypergastrinemia is not known and this state is usually transient (1,8). In addition, the loss of brush border hydrolases causes inadequate carbohydrate breakdown, contributing to osmotic diarrhea. If the terminal ileum has been resected, bile acids are not well absorbed, which results in sodium and water secretion in the colon, again adding to diarrhea. Loss of the bile acid pool will cause steatorrhea and malabsorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). This disruption of the enterohepatic circulation of bile can lead to both cholesterol gallstones and oxalate kidney stones. Thirty-five to forty percent of patients with SBS have been found to develop gallstones (10). Risk factors for the development of...
