Diet Can Help Prevent Gallbladder Problems
Your diet can help you reduce your risk of developing gallbladder issues. A gallbladder-healthy diet is low in saturated fats that may trigger gallbladder attacks but includes healthy unsaturated fats. The diet is high in fiber, vitamin C, and calcium and low in sugar. Some specific elements of the gallbladder diet are:
- Avoiding saturated fats, including those found in meat, cheese, and other animal products
- Including monounsaturated fats found in most nuts, seeds, avocado, olives, and some plant oils
- Incorporating polyunsaturated fats, including omega-3 fats, found in fatty fish, walnuts, and flaxseed
- Eating fiber-rich foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, may help promote gallbladder health.
- Reducing added sugar and processed foods, which are associated with a higher risk of developing gallstones.
- Drinking coffee every day has been linked to a decreased risk of gallstones.
