Understanding the Link Between Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder Surgery) and Dysglycemia (Abnormal Blood Sugar)

blood.sugar.1Having a cholecystectomy can be a difficult and life-changing experience. You may have been struggling with gallbladder issues for a while, and the surgery may have been your only option. But what you may not have been told is that this procedure can have long-term effects on your health, specifically when it comes to your blood sugar levels.

The Link Between Cholecystectomy and Dysglycemia

Research has shown that those who have had a cholecystectomy are at a higher risk for developing dysglycemia, which includes both pre-diabetes and diabetes. In fact, a study found that those with cholecystectomy were more likely to have prediabetes (50.0% vs. 33.2%) and diabetes (25.0% vs. 10.0%) compared to those without the surgery. This is a significant difference and highlights the importance of addressing this potential health concern.

Understanding Dysglycemia

Dysglycemia is a condition where your blood sugar levels are not within the normal range. This can lead to a variety of health issues, including fatigue, weight gain, and an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. It is essential to address this condition and take steps to prevent or manage it.
