Binge eating may be causing my gallbladder issues...!!

Postby diana12 » Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:04 pm

Eek! I'm a pretty dedicated binge eater, and just got diagnosed with Gallbladder disease. I didn't think that my binges would affect me there, but I'm reading more online about the relationship between these two issues. This resource mentions that the *link removed, commercial site* could be what I've now suffering from.

Anybody else experiencing gallbladder issues here?

Hi Diana,

That must be painful. I watched two of my friends suffer with gallbladder disease and both of them ended up having surgery to remove their gallbladders. I'm sorry you have to go through this.

To answer your question, I haven't had any problems with my own gallbladder and don't personally know any binge eaters who are dealing with the same problem you are. But I have heard of a connection between overeating and gallbladder disease before. From what I understand, the biggest challenge lies in having to alter one's diet because of the medical issue, and suffering as a result of binging on fatty foods.

If you haven't done so already, now is the time to address the emotional issues that trigger your binge eating. Not dealing with it is going to cause you a lot of physical pain.

Welcome to the forum, and keep writing!
Blame it on me, but know that I won't regret one iota.

Thanks ladyswan, for the good advice.

I guess my family has a history of gall bladder issues as well, which (of course) is a contributory factor anyway.
