Biliary (gallbladder) sludge

This is a question regarding excruciating abdominal pain in the early hours of the morning (lasting up to 4 hours)! The attacks fall anywhere between nine days and two months apart. The hospital can only offer complete removal of the gallbladder. Can anyone offer any information or advice? One reader who has had gallstones for five years says that, bizarre as it sounds, a high-fat diet works wonders. Too much sugar and refined carbohydrates can contribute to gallstones, so she decided to cut them out. Three years later, she has yet to have another attack, and she's sticking to a high-fat, low-carb diet (she's also lost three stone). The theory is that when you only eat fat occasionally, the gallbladder is inactive and gallstones build up. If you're eating fat 6 times a day, however, the gallbladder is constantly active, and any gallstones are kept too small to cause pain. Another reader suggested the Chinese remedy LIDAN, claiming it offers relief within a few hours. There are gallbladder flushes you can find on the Internet - one woman uses a combination of two she found online and recommends you find the one that works for you. Drinking a combination of olive oil, ginger and garlic will help shift gallstones, and drinking apple juice will soften the stones.
