    No Gall Bladder

    I had my gall bladder removed almost 10 years ago. I am wondering if the body can't digest fats very well when we don't have one. I know when my gb was diseased, it had trouble digesting fats. I've found I have flareups in a skin rash on my face...

    I had my gall bladder removed almost 10 years ago. I am wondering if the body can't digest fats very well when we don't have one. I know when my gb was diseased, it had trouble digesting fats. I've found I have flareups in a skin rash on my face when I get too much natural fats--wondering if this is normal?

    • Hi there,
      I agree with you that there do seem to be more problems with dietary fats in my patients who once had gallstones, whether or not theyHi there,
      I agree with you that there do seem to be more problems with dietary fats in my patients who once had gallstones, whether or not they dissolved their gallstones by a low-fat, oil-free plant-based diet of whole unprocessed food, or instead had cholecystectomy (surgical removal of the gall bladder.)

      Many people tell me that they suffer more skin inflammation when they eat foods higher in dietary fat than 20% of calories from fats. I sure do, myself. (But I have never suffered gallstones...)

      So to answer your question: Is it normal? No, skin eruptions or inflammations are not normal, yet they seem to me to occur more commonly in those predisposed to gallbladder issues.

      Are these intolerances to dietary fat more common than many people suspect? Yes, I do think so.
