I just wanted to give a quick update on my gallbladder issue...a few weeks ago I did the HIDA scan & it was functioning at 15%. I just saw my dr at Mayo...we did a full abdomen ultra sound...no stones in gallbladder. He does not want to remove it...says the low-functioning is a result of the gallbladder not getting the signal from the small intestine to work. The small intestine is where my damage is, so I guess that makes sense. He has seen this all turn around after enough healing takes place...I am about 8 months since diagnosis.

So, I am on digestive enzymes & hoping things resolve. I am amazed how many things Celiac Disease can effect in our bodies!

Hope this gives insight to anyone else dealing with gallbladder issues...

Sounds like you have a good doctor and I hope the issue resolves for you quickly. Thank you for the update.

It sure gives me some insight into why so many have had their gallbladder removed - often seemingly unnecessarily when it didn't solve anything - before finding out about gluten.

Interesting Mayo Dr comment on it being the signaling causing low function % instead of a functional incapability.

Sounds like you have a great Dr., especially compared to the ones we usually hear about.

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07
