No gallbladder, excessive bile itchy skin
Gallbladder removed Dec 2021. I am female early 50's no problems until 2 months ago. Greasy peanut butter color stool, pain if I eat too much sweets or drink 1 glass of wine. Kidney, Liver and Pancreas lab was all normal-3 months ago my Amylase levels was 150 but it's now 108.
2 weeks ago started having itchy skin with no jaundice but itchy all over, especially at night for about 5 days and then 2 days this week.
Relief found in baking soda baths and histamine otc meds. Doctor told me today without testing of any kind that I am producing too much Bile and gave me a rx - does anyone have a cure for this and what are the symptoms of too much bile vs producing too little bile, again without a gallbladder? thank you and this site along with Ted's suggestions has helped me numerous times.
Bile Acid Malabsorption
Getting a sensitivity test, via hair samples, and allergen tested via a blood test can definitely help guide a person in assisting in their symptoms.
I am not sure of the validity of the hair test, and plan on doing another test soon to see what comes up... but, I stopped one of the triggers I was highly sensitive to, and lower left Sharp postin 2is virtually gone and (while working to do an entire elimination of all of them) my belly pain and bloating has improved.
I believe I am on the right track.
My blood test from the doctor's office said I was low on iron and potassium and? One other thing.
And the sensitivity hair test said I was lacking in five others;and so I'm working to build those up by eating foods that bring that back into my body naturally. I can only be helping myself at this point
