What to Do If You Don’t Have a Gallbladder?

Gallbladder problems are extremely common.  Approximately 750,000 Americans have their gallbladder removed each year.  In most cases, the pain of a malfunctioning gallbladder becomes so bad, that surgery is the only viable option.  Most people are under the impression that once their gallbladder is taken out, the pain and discomfort they’ve been living with will be gone.  Sadly that’s often not the case.  It is common to have just as much discomfort after the gallbladder is removed.

People without a gallbladder are more prone to digestive problems and liver problems; they can even form stones within the ducts of the liver.  The risk of developing a fatty liver is also greater in people without a gallbladder. Some herbs and nutritional supplements are extremely beneficial if you don’t have a gallbladder.  Are you confused about which supplements to take, or which foods you should avoid?

The function of the gallbladder

Your gallbladder is important.  Your liver continually manufactures bile, which travels to your gallbladder, where it is stored and concentrated.  Bile helps you to digest fat; therefore your gallbladder secretes a lot of bile into your intestines after you’ve eaten a fatty meal.  Bile is also your body’s way of excreting wastes and toxins.  Bile contains cholesterol and other fats that your liver has broken down and wants to excrete.  A well functioning gallbladder helps your body excrete cholesterol, other fats and fat soluble toxins.

What happens when you don’t have a gallbladder?

Your liver continues to manufacture bile, but there is no longer a place to store it or concentrate it.  Therefore bile continually slowly trickles into intestines.  If you eat a fatty meal, you will not be able to secrete a large enough amount of bile into your intestines, therefore the fat will be poorly digested.  This means many people experience diarrhea, bloating, nausea or indigestion.

Not digesting fat well means you will not be able to digest essential fatty acids, including omega 3 and omega 6 fats.  It also means you’ll have a hard time absorbing fat soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, E, A and K.  These nutrients are vital for good health, and you will probably need to take a supplement.

How to have a healthy liver and good digestion without a gallbladder

First of all it’s important to realise that you developed a gallbladder problem in the first place because you had an unhealthy liver.  If your liver is not healthy, it will make poor quality bile.  The bile will be prone to forming sludge and stones.  Just whipping the gallbladder out doesn’t solve that problem, and in fact sludge and stones can form within the liver, compromising its function.

Here are some vital tips to follow:

  • Keep your intake of dairy products and grains to a minimum or avoid them altogether.  Dairy products (milk, cheese, ice-cream, yoghurt) worsen all cases of gallbladder disease, liver disease and they are very difficult to digest.  Food intolerance is a common cause of gallbladder problems, and there is research that links gluten intolerance with gallstones.  A good reason to keep your intake of grains low is to reduce the risk of developing a fatty liver.  There is an easy to follow eating plan in my book Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It.
  • Take a good quality liver tonic such as Livatone.  The herbs St Mary’s thistle, dandelion root and globe artichoke leaves all increase bile production and bile flow.  Taurine is an amino acid necessary for bile production.  This should help to make you feel more comfortable after a meal, and should reduce the risk of stones forming inside your liver.
  • Eat some good fats and avoid the bad fats.  Your doctor may have recommended you follow a low fat diet after having your gallbladder removed.  This is not necessary and in fact it is harmful.  Your body desperately needs good fats and I recommend you include moderate quantities of extra virgin olive oil, avocados, coconut milk and oil, nuts and seeds in your diet.
  • Take an ox bile supplement.  This is the most important recommendation for people who have lost their gallbladder.  A lack of bile can produce symptoms such as bloating and indigestion after meals, light colored stools, diarrhea, fatigue after meals and nutrient deficiencies.  Taking a good quality ox bile supplement with each meal is wonderful for completely eliminating these symptoms in most individuals.
  • Take a Digestive Enzymes supplement. The majority of people who developed a gallbladder problem have suffered with poor digestion for many years. If your stomach and intestines are not in optimal health, they will not send signals to your gallbladder, telling it to contract properly. Irritable bowel syndrome, dysbiosis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and Candida overgrowth are common in people with a gallbladder problem. If you have had your gallbladder removed, you may continue to suffer symptoms due to those conditions. These digestive problems also cause insufficient digestive enzyme production. Taking digestive enzymes in supplement form helps to restore good digestive health and reduces symptoms of indigestion.
  • You may need a vitamin D3 supplement.  People with compromised liver or digestive function are often vitamin D deficient.  Exposure of your skin to the sun’s UVB rays enables your body to manufacture vitamin D.  However, this process occurs in your liver and kidneys.  People with a sluggish liver often do not manufacture vitamin D adequately.  Therefore it’s a good idea to get a blood test and take a supplement.  5000 IU of vitamin D3 is a safe and effective dose for most people, but it’s best to be guided by your own doctor.
  • Include some bitter and sour foods in your diet.  They should help to improve your digestion and make it easier to tolerate good fats in your diet.  Suitable bitter and sour foods include lemons, limes, radicchio lettuce, chicory, endive and dandelion leaves.  These leaves are fairly easy to grow at home if you are lucky enough to have your own veggie patch.

  1. Hello. I’m 23 and just this year I’ve had 5 “attacks” where I get excruciating pain in my lower chest, all the way down to my abdomen and across it. The pain always lasts for 1-2 hours and is not touched at all by extra strength pain meds. I also feel extremely hot during the attacks, but my skin feels cold to others. I had an ultrasound and my doctor said my gallbladder is full of stones and needs to be removed. Do the attacks I am having sound like something gallstones would cause? I already have IBS and I read having the gallbladder removed causes IBS-like issues, am I going to have double-IBS now? I feel like my life is going to be a living hell if I get it removed. I already take several pills morning and night for mental health issues, how would I work in these recommended pills, and what if they interact with my current pills? No sugar, dairy, gluten, basically, nothing pleasurable to eat. No chocolate? One of the only things that makes my life good is chocolate. I’m completely miserable. I can’t believe how getting the gallbladder out does pretty much nothing, why not just leave it in? If I’m still going to get pain and even more stones, why do I need it removed?

    • Hi Kara,

      If you are in a lot of pain and have several stones we generally recommend gallbladder removal.
      There are ways to minimise symptoms and digestive issues after gallbladder removal.
      We recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, dairy, processed food and takeout meals.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What To Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Super Digestive Enzymes 1-2 caps with a glass of water with each meal to reduce digestive symptoms, improve fat metabolism and increase nutrient absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

  2. I’m 18 and i had my gall bladder removed 9 months ago, i have been having problems with the aftermath of going out clubbing with my friends, where the next day, i cannot eat because of how sick i feel in my stomach and it affects everything, i know cutting out alcohol is the best option, but at my age i don’t really want to have to stop drinking, my surgeon said “just go back to your normal routine” but that isnt the case, has anyone found anything that works to stop that next day sickness,
    Thanks

    (also it’s definitely not a hangover, because it takes me two drinks to feel sick now)

    • Hi Kyra,

      After gallbladder removal we recommend the elimination of grains, sugar, dairy, processed food and takeout meals.
      If you’d rather not eliminate alcohol completely at least try to cut back to improve symptoms.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.
      After gallbladder removal it is common for fatty liver to occur due to bile impairment.
      We recommend you get a liver function test.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Super Digestive Enzymes as it contains Ox Bile to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption as well as Betaine HCL and Pancreatic Enzymes to promote efficient digestion of carbohydrates, protein and fat.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.

    • You need to start being serious about your health. I was in the same boat at one stage questioning whether I’d still be able to drink and indulge, but after getting sick and needing GB surgery these things became non issues. The only thing that matters is your health. Stay off alcohol, it’s a stupid habit that only matters slightly when you’re young. As you get older you’ll question why you ever drank at all, let alone when your health was already so poor. It’s not worth the long term effects.

  3. I am certain most gallbladder issues arise from undiagnosed hernias which slows, inhibits and at times stops the function of digestion in small intestines with inguinal hernia. The hernia slides back and forth as you lay down so it is sometimes hard to diagnosis. It causes havoc on your digestion. (Had thought it was back pain)Even the surgeon who did the surgery could not find the inguinal hernia until it was found in test (ultrasound)STANDING UP for testing. I can affirm this after 5 surgeries.

  4. I had my gallbladder taken out about 3 years ago and my only problem besides changing what I eat now is that I tend to gain weight more easily. I try dieting,eating right, working out and I don’t lose as much weight as I used to. Is this because I don’t have my gallbladder no more?

    • Hi Miguel,

      It is very common to get fatty liver after you have had your gallbladder taken out.
      When you have your gallbladder removed your bile flow is impaired and bile is required for essential fat absorption. This can then lead to fatty liver, which makes it hard to lose weight.
      We recommend you eliminate grains, dairy, processed food and take out meals.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      Fatty liver can be diagnosed by getting an ultrasound scan of the liver and/or a liver function test.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps three times daily in the middle of meals to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.
      Raw juicing is excellent. There are some great recipes in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.

  5. My 11 year old overweight son has been diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease. He is attempting to lose weight through increasing his activity and eating healthier food plus snacking only on fruits/vegetables. He does not drink soda…only water. Would it be okay to put him on the supplements that you mentioned in previous emails? I wasn’t sure if they would be okay for a child. Thank you.

    • Hi Vel,

      There is an excellent diet plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      We recommend he eliminate grains, dairy and processed foods. Perhaps gradually, to make the process easier.
      It is important that he base his diet on good protein (chicken,seafood,lean meat,eggs), good fats, fresh fruits and vegetables and nuts and seeds.
      To make it easier, you could make raw vegetable juices which can be quite tasty. There are some good recipes in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.
      There is excellent information in this article: https://www.liverdoctor.com/what-should-you-eat-if-you-have-fatty-liver/
      Dr Cabot recommends he take
      Livatone Plus powder 1/2 tsp twice daily in raw juice or water, OR Livatone Plus 1 cap twice daily to improve liver function.
      Let us know how he gets on.

  6. HOW MUCH BILE SALTS do we take when eating a CLEAN DIET without meat? What are the side effects of taking too many enzyme supps over a long period of time?

    I am yet to find much information to questions like that. : (

    Someone eating a clean diet, following the 80/20 method, layers and times their food efficiently as well as lives a stress free life, sleeps well + does regular exercise will need nowhere the same dosage of supplementation as someone who continues to eat unhealthy foods and lives a stressful life.

    Yet there is not discussion on such relationships with the taking of supps! They are quick to tell us why we must … quick to sell … but given us little in the way of learning how to take these kinds of supps.

    • Hi David,

      If you are taking Ox Bile the dosage depends on how much dietary fat the meal contains.
      If you are having a meal higher in dietary fat we recommend you take 2 caps in the middle of that meal.
      If you are having a meal low in dietary fat 1 cap would be sufficient.
      Ox Bile and Livatone Plus supplements are required long-term if you have had your gallbladder removed.
      I hope this helps you.

  7. Hi,
    I read on another site that without a gallbladder, I am not able to digest saturated fat found naturally in meat. Is this true? Would the ox bile take care of that?

    • Hi Holly,

      Without adequate bile you are unable to digest dietary fats.
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily will replace the bile that is no longer coming from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      It can be purchased here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com

  8. I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago and I still seem to not be able to properly digest things like whole wheat, milk, or fatty foods like fries, deep fried items. They seem to go right through me, sometimes within 5 to 10 minutes it seems. Is this veey common with not having a gallbladder or is this IBS. It’s pretty much to the point I don’t like going places. Any recommendations would be great. Thank you.

    • Hi Dallas,

      When the gallbladder is removed it is unable to digest or break down fatty foods.
      We recommend you remove all processed foods, gluten, dairy and take out meals from your diet.
      You should base your diet on good protein sources (chicken,seafood,lean meat,eggs), good fats, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps three times daily in the middle of meals to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.

  11. I had acute pancreatitis a week ago caused by a blocked bile duct. I was told it would definitely happen again if I didn’t have my gall bladder removed. I felt I had no choice. Pancrease or gall bladder. So I had it removed. I had been eating a ketogenic diet for 3 months but didn’t know I had gall stones, which is a contraindication. I’m bummed that I had to loose my gall bladder. Am ordering the ox bile. thanks.

    • Hi Jan,

      That’s great that you are ordering the Ox Bile. We recommend 1-2 caps at the beginning of each meal.
      We also recommend Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.

  12. My 19 year old daughter had her g/b removed 3 months ago and while it has helped with some symptoms like constant severe pain and nausea, she now RUNS to the bathroom following meals with diarreah. We’ve pinpointed most meats mess her up so she’s cut out meat, I’ve suspected dairy and even gluten being triggers but wasn’t sure. After reading online I this site and am going to have her cut out dairy, processed carbs & sugar. What supplements do you recommend she take? And any other advice would be GREATLY appreciated. She lives in a college dorm so her school cafe has proved challenging. (Classic college student life!)

    • Hi Kim,

      Dr Cabot recommends

      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps at the beginning of every meal three times daily, as this will replace the bile that is no longer provided by the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.

  13. Reading everything here, I can identify with a lot of people. I also had my gallbladder removed and thought I had IBS. I’m now following a Keto diet & taking digestive enzymes along with B complex. I want to loose weight and be healthy. I want my liver to function to the best of it’s ability. I will continuously monitor my health and increase exercise so that I can live a long happy life. I’v cut out sugars, carbs, grains and nearly all dairy. Best of luck to you all. I hope you find your way.

  14. is a liver cleanse necessary? I’ve never done one my entire life and feel like hell. my gallbladder was removed in 2013, i was looking into UNDA 1,20,and 243 liver cleanse that i was told is gentle. anyone try it before? also, is the livatone and the oxbile a cleanse? please advise…

    • Hi Andrea,

      You need to avoid grains, dairy and processed foods.
      I recommend you take Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily so that your liver can start making healthy bile and Ox Bile 1 – 2 capsules in middle of every meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.
      You should read Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.

  15. Hello!

    I have one concern cause my gallbladder was removed few days ago. Am I still able to continue to consume my diet supplement like fat burner for exercise? And other supplement like collagens or cleansing detox?

    Thanks!

    • Dear Ying,

      As I’m not sure of the exact supplements you are taking I would check with the company that makes them.
      You should take 1 -2 capsules of Ox Bile capsules at the beginning of each meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption, and Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      It is also important to eliminate or reduce dairy, grains and processed foods.

  16. I have had 4 ERCP’s this year due to stones stuck in my bile duct. I had my gall bladder out 10+ years ago and this problem has just recently surfaced. I also have gastroparesis so diet is hard to figure out. What can I do to stem the production of stones?

    • Dear Gavin,

      This is actually quite common after gallbladder removal. It’s because the original liver problem that caused the gallstones hasn’t been addressed.
      There is information to help you in this book: http://shop.liverdoctor.com/save-your-gallbladder.html
      Regarding your diet, we recommend it is free of sugar, gluten and dairy products.

  18. Had mine removed in ’04 and dr never told me to take anything 🙁

    • The same with my doctor. I had mine removed in 2002 and been having bathroom issues ever since. That doctor who performed the gallbladder removal said NOTHING about what to eat/ what not to eat. A different doctor chalked my issues to “Irritable Bowel Syndrome”. I’ve been noticing it is worse after eating or drinking something with a heavy cream.

      I wish I had realized sooner that all of my stomach/bathroom troubles could be a result of not having a gallbladder and what foods I’ve been consuming.

  19. I lost my gallbladder in 2007. I developed sepsis due to a nicked colon. I was near death when I was rushed to the hospital. 50days in a coma on the ventalator,trached,high fevers,pneumonia 4times in that 50 days. Blood transfusion. When I came out of the coma and recovered all I was told was that my gallbladder stopped functioning that is why it was removed.The doctor didn’t seem concerned about it,gave no advise on what to do. I now have alot of problems with my digestive tract. I wish doctors were more forthcoming with information and precautions to take.

  20. I was just told i have a fatty liver i have no gallbladder and all the dr said was not to eat rice, bread ,crackers, potatoes etc that is all he didnt even give me a diet! does anyone know what i can eat?

    • Dear Lorraine,

      You need to take Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily and Ox Bile three times a day in middle of meals.
      You need to stop eating sugar, grains, processed foods and dairy, or if you can’t give up these foods reduce them.
      Look at eating foods such as good protein, good fats, and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
      Raw juicing is excellent, refer to our book ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.
      I guarantee you get our books: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What To Do If You’ve Already Lost It, and ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.

    • Hi I feel for you. I have had endless problems since having mine removed 8 years ago especially with food allergy symptoms weight gain and chronic constipation. I am also coming up to the menopause so that isnt helping (Perimenopause) and is causing all sorts of hormone fluctuations and emotional upset. I even studied nutrition to find a natural eating pattern to get back to feeling “normal ” again. I have now cracked it and feel amazing. Cut out all dairy food, all flour and alcohol, take digestive enzymes and consider a liver/magnesium flush. There is all sorts of advice out there but stick to this like i did for agood 3 months and it will change your life. (Search hormones, perimenopause, food, recipes health and fitness on face book and you will find some help)
      Good luck

      • Is Greek yogurt ok? Should one it more often, like small meals every 3 hours or just three times a day like used to before my surgery? What about coffee?

      • Hi Katharine,

        I am looking for the liver flush/cleanse for people with gallbladder removed. Would you be able to let me know what kind of liver/magnesium flush you did please. Is that Andreas Moritz’s?
        Thank you.

      • Hi there Catherine you sound identical to me, I’am 38 I’ve just started a 3 month diet change, GF free, No alcohol, Dairy free, and my hormones mood swings are going crazy, I lost my gore bladder in 2014, and lived in the bathroom. But I needed a change and quickly..my health was giving out. Thanks for sharing I to feel great and it’s only been 2 weeks . I look forward to the end result, LOOK AFTER YOURSELF WE ONKY GET ONE BODY, no second chance xx

      • Hi K. I related best to your post. I’m 45 and heading to menopause. No GBladder for 18 years now but symptoms of chronic acid/wind pressure at night, nauseated after alcohol for 3 – 4 days, bloated tummy. I seem to only function well if I drastically limit alcohol to 4 units a week and avoid wheat and dairy. I think I’m coming to realise that my digestive health is so compromised now. Need to commit to change!

        • Hi Caz,

          Your symptoms are caused from not having the bile available from your gallbladder to break down dietary fats.
          We recommend you eliminate all processed foods, dairy, gluten, take out meals and high fructose corn syrup.
          We recommend you take
          Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily to replace the bile that is no longer coming from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
          Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.

    • Yes dear, a low carb diet will do you wonders.

  21. I had my galllbladder removed in 2009 neither surgeon or doctor advised me that this would cause a great change to my life, I asked if I needed to alter my eating habits and was told “not necessarily” I have since then gained 8 stone in weight which I cannot budge. I have no energy to be excercising at gyms etc.. and I feel totally let down by the amount of ignorance of our so called experts in our now UK health service. A long long time ago when there were Matrons, sisters and staff nurses, the doctors were definitely more knowledgeable. Has everything been dumbed down so no one fails..We need the people with high intelligence in these areas not the people who THINK they are entitled to be..!

    My dr. Told me none of this.

    • Mine too! In fact following the operation (in the UK) and discharge from hospital I was not contacted by my GP re enquiring if was ok etc! This was five years ago and lately I have recently had digestion problems so the advice re diet is invaluable and will follow these guidelines in the future!
