Nausea and Vomiting
The gallbladder’s important role in digestion means that when it isn’t working properly, it can cause serious problems with your ability to keep food down. Gallbladder disease causes inflammation, lack of blood flow, and damage to gallbladder tissue. It blocks digestive fluids from moving through the digestive system properly. So, it’s no surprise that people with gallbladder conditions may be more prone to nausea and vomiting. These symptoms are especially common after eating a large or fat-heavy meal. Gallbladder issues cause vomiting and nausea in a couple of ways. First, gallbladder diseases can cause severe abdominal pain and discomfort, which can cause or worsen nausea. Additionally, the interruption of bile flow prevents your body from properly digesting food and can cause you to experience an upset stomach. Sometimes, people mistake digestive issues related to gallbladder disease for less serious problems like food poisoning.
