In this video, Dr. Berg talks about several reasons why removing the gallbladder could make you fat. The gallbladder is a sac that holds and concentrates the bile up to 20x. The bile helps with a lot of functions in the body.
1. You need plenty of bile to help convert thyroid hormones
2. High A1C and Blood Sugars – Bile helps to make insulin sensitive. The high amounts of insulin could make you fat.
3. Microbiome, Decrease Flora – Increase weight gain.
4. Constipation – Bile acts as a lubricant and without the lubricating effect you’ll become constipated and hold a lot of waste material thus increasing the weight.
5. Bloated – Swollen Belly
6. Fatty Liver
In this video we want to talk about why does removing the gallbladder potentially make you fat. Here’s several reasons, one is that you need plentiful bile to help you convert your thyroid hormones. The thyroid produces T4, it is converted through the liver and the gallbladder to the active form which is T3. So if we don’t have enough bile and that’s what happens when you remove the gallbladder, you just have this trickling effect because the gallbladder is a sac that holds and concentrates bile up to 20x. So we don’t have that concentrating effect, we just have drops come down in a non-concentrating effect so we’re gonna have a bile deficiency. So that can affect the thyroid and make the thyroid be hypo and slow down your metabolism. Another factor is that without enough bile, your A1C can go up, your blood sugars can go up. Bile helps to make insulin sensitive. So it’s insulin resistance is a situation where the insulin is no longer sensitive it’s being resistive. This is that connection and then the higher amounts of insulin can make you fat. The microbiome, the flora, the friendly bacteria in your gut are highly influenced by bile. So if there’s not enough bile, you’re gonna have a less amount of microbes in your gut and so you can gain weight just from that alone. Bile also acts as a lubricant so without the lubricating effect you can become constipated and hold a lot more waste material thus increasing your weight gain. You could also feel bloated all the time because bile helps bloating and that can give you a swollen belly and create a lot of congestion in that area and increase weight gain. Also, bile helps to keep the liver from becoming fatty so if there’s not enough bile there, your risk for fatty liver goes way up. Alright. So now that you know all the different effects from bile, what would you do? I recommend you start taking some bile. You can get purified bile salts and that can help you. I’ll put a link down below for more information on that but bile is very important if you don’t have a gallbladder. Thanks for watching!
