intrahepatic bile duct dilatation on ultrasound? Sibo/Candida?

Hi, I had an abdominal ultrasound done which came back almost normal, but it showed an intrahepatic bile duct dilatation. I have an older ultrasound from 2 years before which shows the same thing.

Could this be due to an infection from bacteria or Candida ? Should i be worried because of this?

I have the classic symptoms of Candida/Sibo, but sadly the doctors in my country don't know much about these conditions.

Do you think i can cure myself with a proper paleo style diet plus taking the proper herbs,antifungals etc. ?

Well based upon what you have told me, it doesn't seem like you have anything serious. You should be fine, most doctors would tell you what you have is "idiopathic". If you want to be completely sure talk to your doctor to see if an Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography to detect candidiasis of the billiary tree would be right for you, see here: http://www.nature.com/ajg/journal/v101/n11/abs/ajg2006470a.html

Few more questions just to rule a few things out:

1. Are the whites of your eyes yellow-ish?

2. Do you get heartburn like symptoms, or pains just above your stomach that radiate towards the back?

3. What is your age?

4. Are you diabetic, and if so, when where you diagnosed?

5. Have you been having really dark, almost amber-colored urine?

Well, if the stones are large enough, then it is very likely that the gallstones would show. But if you have gallbladder sludge (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11276386) it might not always show up on the ultrasound depending on the particle size. Judging from your answers to the questions I do not think you have either as you have not experienced symptoms of cholecystitis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholecystitis)

Possible causes:

1. Do you or your family have a history of gallstones?

2. Have you recently embarked on a low fat diet, a very low calorie diet, or a fasting regimen?

3. Have you lost a lot of weight recently?

4. Do you get strong pains below your right chest, underneath your rib cage, which sometimes radiate to your back?

5. Do you have undigested fat/oil in your stool?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might have gallstones.
