I just had an Ultrasound done on my gall bladder. Last week I was rushed to ER with severe abdominal pain. At the time it was determined that I had a slightly elevated Lipase enzyme level. The ER doc suspected a gall stone.
During the Ultrasound the Tech and I began discussing the gall bladder. She indicated that she felt that gall stones were caused by too much fat in a person's diet. Her views are from experience with no evidence but could ones high fat intake cause one to develop gall stones?
Elevated Lipase can also be a smoking gun that a person has Celiac's disease, which I have suspected for a long time but have never been able to get medical confirmation.
UPDATE: Results came back NO STONES! Let the high fat diet continue.
