Are you familiar with what the gallbladder does and how it affects your health?

Do you know about the negative consequences of having your gall bladder removed?

Do you know about the important role your Gallbladder plays with the balance of hormones.

If you stay tuned, I will explain just how important this organ is and why you need it! If you have had it removed stay with us because there is important information in this article for you as well.

If you suspect you have a gall bladder problem either causing or contributing to your thyroid disorder you are not alone.

It is also estimated that 30 million Americans or 1 in 10 have liver, billiary or gallbladder disease and if you have a Thyroid disorder or female hormone imbalances the chances of having a problem with your gallbladder are almost guaranteed to increase significantly.

One of the main reasons for this is because someone with a malfunctioning gallbladder will have problems breaking down fats, which leads to thick, sluggish bile. This thick and sluggish bile in turn will interfere with hormone metabolism and the clearing of hormones from your system. Some studies show as much as 60% of inactive T4 Thyroid Hormone is converted into active T3 Thyroid hormone. Where does this Thyroid hormone conversion take place?….. If you said the Liver your exactly right. This is why optimal hormone balance is so essential to the Thyroid.


In my practice, I work with many women who suffer with female hormone imbalances, infertility, and Hypothyroidism most if not all of them have some form of gallbladder disease. I often find gall bladder problems associated with a condition known as estrogen dominance.

This is why if you are working on restoring hormone balance naturally you should have your hormones evaluated using a comprehensive hormone saliva sample. A good holistic doctor will always run a hormone panel BEFORE prescribing hormones. Please do not start taking bio-identical hormones without having your hormone levels checked. I see many holistic doctors, simply prescribe hormones without ever testing. This can be dangerous in some cases. In my office we run a Comprehensive Salivary Female Hormone panel.

Living Free from Hypothyroidism - Dr. Hagmeyer

In a past article I have explained the Relationship Between Estrogen Dominance And Gallbladder Issues and if you have not read this article I encourage you to go back and read that article here.

If you suffer with gallbladder problem and experiencing the common symptoms (bloating, gas, stomach pain, constipation, your most likely avoiding certain foods.

Reality check number one is that this does not correct or addressing the cause and it eventually causes more distress to the body.

If you continue to ignore gall bladder symptoms your ability to break down fats and fat soluble vitamins will be compromised. Do you suffer with vitamin D deficiency? If you have Hypothyroidism and problems with cholesterol which most thyroid sufferers do (high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low HDL, high LDL, low vitamin D) your doctor has most likely prescribed Zocor, Crestor, Lipitor or some other statin to lower your cholesterol but this will not address the cause of your problem.

If this is happening to you, don’t settle for just taking statins and calling it a day. You need to understand WHY.

The Jupiter Study Shows Statins Aggravate Type II Diabetes and Blood Sugar Problems

On February 28, 2012, the FDA announced a warning that all statin drugs – the best known are Lipitor and Crestor – could raise blood sugar, aggravate Type II diabetes, and create cognitive impairment.

And as I’ve also mentioned in past articles, having a strong digestive system is imperative for someone who is looking to restore their health back to normal by following a natural treatment protocol. You are going to need to do some investigative detective work to underlying gallbladder problem.

If the gallbladder problem is not addressed, then of course the individual will continue to have the thick, sluggish bile, which will continue to interfere with Thyroid and hormone metabolism, and it overall will affect the digestive process as well.

A big part of the recovery process implemented at The Naperville Institute For Neuro Metabolic Solutions revolves eating well and taking certain nutritional supplements aimed at correcting faulty biochemistry.

Points to remember about this article

In summary, many people with hypothyroidism have the condition known as estrogen dominance, and this in turn can lead to a gallbladder issue.

Anyone who is looking to restore their health by following a natural treatment protocol will need to correct the estrogen dominance problem, which in turn will frequently correct the gallbladder issue.

Not addressing these conditions will interfere with the hormones, the digestive process, and will make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fully restore one’s health back to normal.

Everything is connected and this is why restoring your health requires a practitioner who will look at the entire picture.

As you can see gallbladder issues can stem by hormone imbalances from the thyroid or by high levels of estrogen

To restore healthy Gallbladder you need to take action steps that include a full thyroid workup, a comprehensive female hormone panel, and understanding the role of good healthy digestion.
