    Wondering how many have no gallbladder with these issues?

    Primal Fuel
    I had my gallbladder taken out 10 years ago. I also have a multitude of hormonal problems and digestive issues. I have done some research on gallbladder disease and what causes it etc.....

    I am wondering how many people out there have these problems that are being studied as related to gallbladder disease. So I thought maybe I would get some feedback on the subject.

    How many of you have had your gallbladder out/ or have gallbladder disease along with these other issues?
    1. Iron deficiency anemia
    2. Celiacs disease
    3. Estrogen dominance
    4. Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Graves disease
    5. Adrenal issues
    6. Chronic Fatigue
    7. Fibromialgia
    8. Crohn's disease
    9. Difficulty losing weight
    10. Any mental/ mood issues


    Or if you have other issues that aren't listed feel free to list them. I would love to know the chain of events for them if you know them just to see if there is any connection between cause and effect etc......

    For myself it was:
    anemia(all my life)
    gallbladder disease (symptoms starting at age 12)
    celiacs(symptoms possibly starting around age 13)
    adrenal fatigue (starting around age 22)
    estrogen dominance (starting around age 23)
    graves disease (starting around age 27 I think but may have been present during childhood as I was severely underweight until puberty)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Well, that was depressing. I had my gallbladder out after extraordinarily painful attacks post-pregnancy. Nice to know jack kruse has condemned me to an early death.

    Yeah, I had a similar reaction to that article. I had my gallbladder out many years ago and at the time there wasn't much out there as an alternative to surgery other than the crazy lemon juice and olive oil fast. I didn't fit the supposed typical profile of "FAT, FEMALE, FORTY, and FERTILE", I was in my 20's and thin.

    I haven't really had any significant health problems related to it's removal other than weight gain and digestive changes. I also have food allergies / gluten intollerance, but those may have been more the cause of the initial problem rather than a result of the removal.

    I was also thin and in my 20's when I had that surgery. The pain from the gallstones was worse than labor and I haven't had any issues with it since then, but who knows what goes on inside? Then again, I have to remind myself it's Jack Kruse and maybe I shouldn't buy what he says lock, stock and barrel.

    I had mine removed in my mid twenties, no stones but it was termed "diseased" and was causing painful attacks and not functioning properly, so they took it out. I wasn't "thin", I guess I would have been in the overweight catagory at the time, probably a size 10 or 12. I do remember having digestive changes after, but haven't really noticed any other symptoms. I'm not even going to read that article. That's the last thing I need to read right now, lol!!!

    Wow that is a depressing article. Too late for me I guess. I might as well just throw in the towel now Jack Kruze is one of those bloggers who doesn't always make alot of sense. I have learned to take his articles with a pinch of sceptizism and a pinch of interest. He obviously knows a little about what he's writing about but I think he usually takes a huge leap from what he knows as fact to what he suspects is also fact.

    Well it is somewhat comforting to know that my grandma had hers removed 20 or 30 years ago and she is now 97 years old. She pretty much lived on a Primal diet as she was a farmer's wife. So maybe that will give us Primal eaters who have no gallbladder a leg up.

    Sorry for linking a depressing article...at least you have your 97 year old grandma to exemplify. Do what she does!

    I got mine out last week! And I'm a stick. A strong stick, that is, but I wouldn't know what other diseases/intolerances I have.

    Well, I had many of those symptoms before I have my gall bladder out and still have some of them now.
