Can You Really Dissolve Gallstones?

 Can You Really Dissolve Gallstones?


As of September 2021, there is no scientifically proven method to dissolve gallstones completely with medications or other non-invasive means. Gallstones are solid particles that form in the gallbladder, and their composition can vary (typically made of cholesterol, bilirubin, or a combination of both). Once they have formed, they tend to remain in the gallbladder or bile ducts unless they are removed surgically.

However, certain medications can be prescribed to dissolve cholesterol-based gallstones, but this process can be slow and may take months or even years. These medications are primarily composed of bile acids that help dissolve cholesterol stones over time. The treatment is typically reserved for individuals who cannot undergo surgery or prefer a non-invasive approach. Nevertheless, this treatment has its limitations and may not work for everyone.

The most common and effective treatment for gallstones is usually surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). It is a relatively safe and common procedure, often performed laparoscopically, and it eliminates the risk of gallstones recurring.

If you suspect you have gallstones or are experiencing symptoms related to gallbladder issues, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and personalized advice on the best treatment approach for your specific situation. Medical knowledge and treatments may have advanced since my last update, so it's always best to seek advice from current medical sources.
