Life without a gallbladder
In 2016, I had to have my gallbladder removed due to some pretty serious gallstones. Since then, as you might imagine, digesting fats is an ongoing issue. Being a diabetic, I tend to try to stay away from any food that is overly carby. I seem to be pretty brittle when it comes to anything carby, so Ive just distanced myself from it. When I eat more starches (potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice), I seem to have less issues - as I would kind of expect.
My question is what suggestions would anyone make regarding supplementation or dietary improvements to improve fat digestion without adding in carbohydrates. Carbs = additional insulin for me - which if absolutely needed, Im ok with, but along with added insulin seems to come 50 lbs (slight exaggeration). Ive tried supplementing with digestive enzymes and ox bile in the past, with not much success. Im wiling to try these again, but I recently did this for about a week with no real changes in my digestion. I was taking about 500 mg of ox bile, but I read that too much ox bile can cause diarrhea, which Im already dealing with.
Im curious to know what others have tried or what options I might have.
