The gallbladder serves an important digestive function. It is required to emulsify fats. What is emulsification? One can easily understand this concept when washing greasy dishes. It is nearly impossible to properly clean greasy dishes without soap as the soap emulsifies the fat so it can be removed.
Similarly, the gallbladder stores bile and bile acids, which emulsify the fat one eats so it can be properly transported through the intestine into the blood stream.
A poorly functioning gallbladder handicaps your digestive system and can cause gas, abdominal cramping and headaches.
Even worse is the pain associated with the dreaded gallstones, solid accumulations of bile and cholesterol that need to be cleansed from your system. This is often manifested through a pain in the right hand side of your abdomen. Patients should always consult their doctor if they feel this pain.
