Gallbladder Disease

People who are obese or overweight are at an increased risk of having gallstones, which are hard pieces of stone-like material that form in the gallbladder. These stones are made up of cholesterol and can cause pain in the stomach or back.

Additionally, excess weight can result in an enlarged gallbladder that doesn’t function properly.
