Test Result Accuracy .. Please Help in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & Symptoms Posted May 25, 2015 · Report to Admin I always had a normal ultrasound on my gallbladder. That test primarily looks for stones. A HIDA scan checks the functionality of the gallbladder which is a reservoir for bile (bile is created by the liver). Bile is squeezed out when you eat something like french fries! If your gallbladder works on and off or does not squeeze enough bile out to digest your french fries or bacon, then you are going to feel sick! Mine reached a point where it had 0% functionality and then started to rot (infected). I had emergency surgery while I was on a business trip. But I suffered for over 25 years with it! As did the rest of my family -- it is a family curse! Your doctor did see some bile in your stomach. Your gallbladder could be squeezing too much releasing way more bile than you need to digest whatever you have eaten. A good sign is that you feel okay in the morning, but after eating, you start feeling pain the rest of the day. Worse, if a heavy/fat-filled meal is consumed. My Dad lived for 30 days on Pepsi and Chicken broth due to the pain just before his surgery. They thought he had cancer due to his rapid weight loss, but it was his gallbladder. Yep, he's one of seven siblings and six had non-functioning gallbladders. I am not discounting a celiac diagnosis. That is still on the table!
