Pancreatitis after removal of the gallbladder, diet

Gallbladder is a hollow, small organ related to the digestive system, the main purpose of which is the collection and storage of bile produced by the liver.

Bile is a biologically active liquid of yellow color, produced to stimulate the digestive process, in particular, for the breakdown of fats. From the liver, it flows into the bladder through a special duct, and along the bladder duct gets into the duodenum when it receives food from the stomach.

This happens only if the gallbladder and outgoing tracts function smoothly. But this does not always happen. Unfortunately, the disturbance of the motor functions of the extrahepatic ducts and the gall bladder prevents the coordinated contraction of the organ and its sphincters, disrupting the output of bile to the intestine. This functional disorder is commonly called dyskinesia of bile ducts.

Dyskinesia of bile ducts with excessive delivery of bile to the duodenum is called hyperkinesia, and with its lack - hypokinesia."Disturbance of movement", this is how the term "dyskinesia" translates into a failure of bile transport and digestion, which in most cases leads to the formation of stones and removal of the organ. The gall bladder is not a vital, irreplaceable organ and its absence does not negatively affect the process of digestion.

Pancreatitis after removal of

Patients believe that after removal of the gallbladder, its function is performed by the pancreas, and its overexertion can cause pancreatitis. This opinion is erroneous - these bodies are not interchangeable. And, often, everything is exactly the opposite: the cause of chronic pancreatitis is an inflammatory process in the gallbladder, caused by stones. In most cases, on the contrary, the patient, after removing the organ, feels better, and the periods of remission of pancreatitis become longer.

But sometimes there is another postoperative clinical picture: the bile duct takes on itself the bile ducts, the bile flow into the intestine does not now take place in a large portion, it comes gradually, so its bactericidal function decreases, the microflora of the small intestine changes, the symptoms of digestive disorders appear - diarrhea andconstipation. This is reflected in all digestive organs and primarily on the pancreas, which can cause pancreatitis.

Diet if gallbladder removed in pancreatitis

Gallbladder removal is a pretty serious surgical intervention. It requires strict adherence to diet and specific diet. Such a careful approach to nutrition should also be observed with pancreatitis. Ignoring these regulations can lead to death.

If to generalize, then the diet with these medical indicators must comply with two basic rules:

  • The menu should be fractional;
  • Categorical rejection of fatty, smoked, spicy food.

Medical practice shows that the recovery period after removal of the gallbladder, last at least a year. It is during this period that it is especially important to follow the recommended diet by the experts, bearing the name "No. 5".It is prescribed for pancreatitis.

Such a diet provides for a one-time intake of 100 grams.proteins, the same amount of fats, and 400 grams.carbohydrates. The total caloric density of the diet when removing the gallbladder, should not exceed 3200 kcal.

Special recommendations for such nutrition, are advanced to the heat intake of the dish. They should in no case be too hot or cold. Ideally, the general menu should consist of 6 meals.
