The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ located on the right side of your body, behind your liver and just below your rib cage. Its job is to store bile until you eat, then secrete it during the digestion process. Untreated gallstones can lead to severe pain, but many people do not recognize the signs and symptoms of a gallbladder attack.

There are more than 2.1 billion overweight people in the world, so it’s not surprising that gallbladder attacks affect a significant amount of the population. Sometimes gallbladder attacks are caused by genetic issues, but they are typically associated with lifestyle habits. If your doctor has recommended weight loss or suggested you make dietary changes, you are at risk for gallbladder issues.

If you are unsure whether your lifestyle puts you at risk for a gallbladder attack, talk to a medical professional. Prior to your visit, keep an eye out for the common signs and symptoms mentioned in this article.
