General rules

Polyps of the gallbladder are a benign pathological growth of the mucous membrane of the gallbladder. Polyps can be both single and multiple (polyposis). There are true polyps (adenomatous polyps and papilloma) and "pseudopolyps" - cholesterol polyp - deposits cholesterol on the mucous membrane and inflammatory polyp - pronounced growth of the epithelium, as a consequence of the inflammatory process.

The clinical picture depends on the size of the polyps and their localization. In most patients, asymptomatic carriage of polyps is noted or with a feeling of slight discomfort in the right hypochondrium / upper abdomen or pain after a heavy meal of fatty foods. In cases of localization of the polyp in the neck of the gallbladder and its large size, the symptoms are more pronounced and manifested by periodic intense pain syndrome in the right hypochondrium. Polyps in the gallbladder are more often diagnosed against biliary dyskinesiachronic cholecystitis, gallstone disease. Both with single polyps and gallbladder polyposis, the main danger lies in the high frequency (from 10 to 33%) of their malignancy (degeneration into a malignant tumor).

Treatment of polyps is determined by its size and growth dynamics:

  • Polyps with a size of 10 mm or more, especially against the background of the presence of stones and for violations of the outflow of bile, must be surgically removedcholecystectomy).
  • With a polyp less than 10 mm - observation of it in the dynamics (ultrasound once every three months). At increase in the sizes, and also emergence of new polyps, operational removal is necessary.

With a small size of polyps and inexpressive symptoms, it is recommended that the patient switch to a diet.

The purpose of this table is to reduce the level of workload of the digestive system through the use of certain foods, reducing the number of calories.

To adhere to dietary nutrition to the patient costs not less than two months. The duration of the diet may vary depending on the purpose of the specialist and the severity of the consequences.

The number of meals should be increased, and the usual portion reduced. The reason for this is the need to reduce the level of stress on the organ that secretes bile, stomach, intestines. Establish frequent meals - at least 5 times a day.

Eating a smaller portion of food should not harm the needs of the body. A certain amount of protein and fat. Finish diet food is gradually transformed into the usual. A sharp jump will disrupt the activity of the digestive system.

Causes and diagnosis of the disease

The causes of the appearance of true polyps — adenomas — are not yet known, but up to 90% of all the formations in this organ are actually cholesterol clusters, or loose cholesterol stones — pseudotumors. According to ultrasound, which is currently the leading diagnostic method, they can be taken for polyps, including multiple ones. The characteristic clinical picture of the disease, which is almost always absent in true polyposis, makes it possible to conclude in favor of the cholesterol nature of polyps.

If the symptoms of polyps manifest in a person, he constantly complains of signs of chronic cholecystitis, pain and inflammation, probably against the background of pseudotumor accumulations, cholelithiasis begins to develop - compaction and strong soldering of cholesterol deposits with the walls of the organ. Also, some of the polyps are inflammatory formations that are formed against the background of constant irritation and inflammation of the gallbladder. Endoscopic ultrasound, which is done through the stomach, will help to clarify the appearance of polyposis in the presence of characteristic symptoms, as a result of which the data are much more accurate.

How are polyps in the gall bladder treated?

If the number and size of polyps allow you to save the body, then you can apply a conservative treatment and special food for polyps in the inflamed gall bladder.

Proper nutrition will need a person even after surgical treatment. In this case, you need to eat, even more carefully choosing products, so as not to provoke an inflammatory process. Some people do not just have to excise new growths from the gallbladder, but to remove the organ completely, if there is a danger of polyps reborn or they fill the cavity too much, leading to inactivity of the bladder.

The need for proper nutrition with polyps in the gall bladder

Diseases of the gallbladder and stomach, regardless of the nature of the pathology, require careful attitude. Thus, the development of many pathological processes in the absence of treatment and a sparing diet progresses, and at its peak it may trigger the need for surgical intervention, irreversible structural and functional changes. Top preparations for treating gallbladder polyps here, on how to remove a polyp in the gallbladder right here.

There are several main reasons why you should follow a therapeutic diet.:

  1. Control over the state of a polyp, stabilization of its dynamic development,
  2. Reducing the load on the digestive system
  3. Organized diet can reduce the secretion of bile, gastric juice,
  4. Normalization of bile outflow to prevent liver disease.

Nutrition largely determines the final prognosis for a patient with a tendency to malignancy of pathological polypous tumors.

Attention! When non-compliance with the recommendations of the doctor, drinking alcohol, aggressive food and lack of discipline in food often leads to disastrous consequences:

  • the compensatory functions of the body are reduced and completely stopped,
  • a marked deterioration in the functionality of the hepatobiliary system and liver failure develops.

The diet is necessarily selected individually, in accordance with the patient's clinical history, his general condition, the nature of the polypous lesion of the gallbladder and the location of the polyps in the organ cavities.

A day should be consumed at least 2000 Kcal per day, while avoiding legumes, esters, purines or saturated protein. It is important to control the level of cholesterol in the blood.

Types of polyps

Polyps in the gallbladder are abnormal benign growths of the mucosal epithelium in its lumen.

According to the etiology of occurrence, it is common to distinguish 4 types of formations:

  1. Inflammatory polyp - the result of a long pathological proliferation of granulation tissue on the inflamed surface layer of the gallbladder mucosa,
  2. Cholesterol - a consequence of deposition of cholesterol under the bark of the bladder,
  3. Adenoma - polypous benign tumor of glandular tissue under the mucous membrane of the gallbladder,
  4. Papilloma is a benign neoplasm in the form of a papilla located on the mucous membrane of the organ.

What can not?

Table 5 implies full exclusion (or partial restriction) of products that contain extractive substances in high concentrations, purine compounds or indigestible meat fiber, essential oils, which significantly increase the secretion of all GIT organs.

List of prohibited products:

Use of the listed foods:

  1. Increases gas formation
  2. Complicates digestive processes
  3. It provokes constipation, excessive secretion of bile and gastric juice to digest food.

Recommended Products

The diet should contain the following nutritional components:

  • crackers, dried during the day or in the oven bread (any),
  • boiled vegetables,
  • boiled eggs (no more than 3 pcs per week for a change in diet),
  • lean meat (turkey, chicken, beef, rabbit),

  • decoction of wild rose berries,
  • infusions from the herbs of the series,
  • Hypericum and celandine (with special care),

Food for polyps in the gall bladder

If a polyposis lesion is detected in the gallbladder, it is recommended to immediately and accurately organize the diet, regardless of the severity of the pathological process, the presence or absence of clinical manifestations.

The main conceptual features of a therapeutic diet for gallbladder diseases are considered:

  • Eating only warm food and drinking (neither cold nor hot)
  • Daily calorie intake - no more than 2000 Kcal,
  • Cooking only by boiling, stewing or steaming,
  • Do not drink food immediately after use, preferably in 10-15 minutes.

Half an hour before meals, you can drink 200 ml of warm water with 2-3 drops of lemon juice. This will prepare the body for food, adjust the digestive processes in the right direction.

If the food will be sustained by the clock at the same time, the body will get used in just a month. Discipline in relation to nutrition in polypous lesions of the gallbladder will help “adjust” the body to metered secretion of gastric secretion and bile without harm to the mucous, organs of the hepatobiliary system.

Another important thesis is fasting with polyps of the gallbladder. Clinicians do not support fasting while maintaining an active drinking regimen, except for 1-2 days of the early postoperative period.

In the absence of food intake or with long breaks between meals, the same reverse effect occurs - stagnation and thickening of the bile secretion in the ducts. It is only for this reason that during polyposis one should eat small portions, for example, dividing breakfast, lunch, dinner (up to 7 meals of 150 g each) into two meals.

Diet number 5 - a rough menu for the week

Table number 5 is assigned to the entire period of treatment of gallbladder polyps. The menu is limited to cholesterol, fats, and the diet is enriched with plenty of fresh and boiled vegetables and fruits.

  • violations of intestinal microflora and stomach,
  • to normalize the flow of bile.

The advantages of the diet table number 5 is considered to be financially low-cost, a rapid improvement in the general condition during the period of exacerbation, as well as the maintenance of normal muscular and brain activity.

Additional information about the rules of nutrition in diseases of the gallbladder in this video:

Diet for gallbladder polyps is made individually for each patient. Diet can not be called hungry. If desired, and creative approach, the dishes become especially appetizing and will appeal to even the most demanding patients. In order to avoid serious consequences, it is enough to follow all the recommendations of the doctor and be examined on time.

The causes of the appearance of polyps in the gallbladder are not fully understood today, and their occurrence is often called idiopathic.

Nevertheless, there is a certain tendency among all patients with this pathology, including this:

  • burdened heredity
  • improper diet, leading to disruption of lipid and cholesterol metabolism,
  • chronic cholecystitis, accompanied by bile stasis,
  • JVP,
  • hepatitis.


Often, the disease is almost asymptomatic, with rare exceptions, nausea and painful heaviness in the right hypochondrium can be observed. The presence of any formation in the gallbladder can be recognized only after an ultrasound diagnosis. With ultrasound, a polyp does not appear to create an oval or rounded shade that is associated with the bladder wall and shifts when the patient's body position changes during the examination.

Among other modern visualization techniques have found wide application:

  1. Magnetic resonance cholangiography, which makes it possible not only to identify a polyp and evaluate its localization and structure, but also to exclude any other pathology of the biliary tract,
  2. Endosonography, or endoscopic ultrasonography, which, thanks to the proximity of the duodenum to the gallbladder and the high frequency of the sensor, clarify the structure and localization of the formation,
  3. Computed tomography, evaluating the accumulation of a contrast material by a polyp and differentiating the mass formation in the liver, accompanying a polyp during its transformation into a malignant neoplasm.

Polyps are not dangerous by themselves, however, the frequency of their transformation into a malignant tumor, or malignancy, is estimated to be quite high and amounts to 10-30%. It is the risk of malignancy, as well as the size of the formations that determine the treatment tactics when they are detected. When a polyp is less than 1 cm, as a rule, it is recommended to observe it with a control ultrasound at least once every 3 months. If the size of the formation is 1 cm or more, surgical intervention with cholecystectomy is recommended.

Fasting with polyps in the gallbladder

In medical circles, it is believed that starving with polyps in the biliary system is not the best idea. The fact is that most of the problems in the biliary system are associated with bile stasis. Stagnation often occurs during long breaks between meals - for example, with irregular feeding or fasting. As a result of stagnation, over time, the inflammatory process and even the formation of stones develop.

What can be achieved by fasting? Digestive processes stop, bile does not flow out, but accumulates and condenses.

To avoid stagnation, with polyposis, it is recommended not to starve, but to eat fractionally: often in small portions. This mode facilitates the work of the hepatobiliary system and contributes to its purification.

Recipes for Polyps in the Gallbladder

  • Protein omelet

You will need: proteins from three eggs, 30 ml of milk, a little salt and butter.

Proteins whipped with milk, add salt. Cooked in a double boiler or poured into a frying pan with a small amount of butter and put on a small fire for languishing. Served with vegetables or 10% sour cream.

Need: 200 g potatoes, 2 tbsp. l rolled oats, one carrot, some salt and vegetable oil.

Vegetables are finely chopped, poured with water and set on fire, boiled almost until ready. Add the oat-flakes and boil for another 10 minutes. Salt, add greens and oil, and remove from heat.

Required: 0.5 liters of vegetable broth, two large carrots, butter, salt, greens.

Carrots finely chopped, boiled in broth until cooked. Add salt and butter, beat in a blender until the state of the cream. Served with croutons and greens.

It will take: 9% cottage cheese 100 g, 1 tbsp. l 10% sour cream, sugar or honey.

All ingredients are mixed to the state of the cream. This cottage cheese can be used for spreading on croutons or cookies. If you want, you can make a salty version of the dish: in this case, salt and dill are added instead of sugar or honey.

Alcohol with polyps in the gall bladder

Medical professionals do not recommend drinking alcohol to people who have had polyposis inclusions in the biliary system. It should be noted that the system of biliary excretion is a clear and balanced mechanism that ensures the timely entry of bile mass into the duodenum. But the use of alcohol, albeit in small quantities, upsets this balance: the function of the sphincters is lost, and the secretion of bile becomes asynchronous.

Alcohol activates the secretion of both bile and pancreatic enzymes, as well as simultaneously provoking the spastic contraction of the sphincter of Oddi, which is responsible for the secretion of bile. The process of overstretching the walls of the organ starts, as a result of an increase in pressure in it. In turn, these disorders entail functional stagnation, followed by inflammatory processes. And, as you know, it is stagnation and inflammation that are among the factors that provoke the appearance of polyps in the biliary system.

The ducts are narrowed, scar connective tissue is formed, the risk of stone formation increases.

If alcohol is consumed in large quantities, then the processes of intoxication lead to a failure of fat metabolism - this is another factor that adversely affects both the mechanism of development of polyps and the entire body as a whole.

In conclusion, it should be added that ethanol adversely affects the quality of microflora in the biliary system, which aggravates stagnation and accelerates the development of inflammation.

Tubage with gallbladder polyps

Is it possible to carry out tubage with gallbladder polyps?

Experts believe that the procedure of tubing with the use of vegetable oil or beet juice with polyps can harm patients, because of its excessive intensity. Doctors recommend cleaning the liver and bile ducts instead of tubage. This is done with the help of manual therapy, special massage techniques, breathing exercises. In addition, it is well possible to clear the ducts, taking choleretic fees on the background of acupuncture and visceral chiropractic procedures. This therapeutic combination will help relieve spasms, eliminate tissue swelling, and improve the flow of bile from the hepatobiliary system.

Herb pickings may include:

  • chamomile flowers
  • St. John's wort grass
  • mint leaves,
  • yarrow grass,
  • fennel seeds,
  • immortelle.

A good substitute for a tuba will also be the reception of one tablespoon of vegetable oil in the morning on an empty stomach, with a glass of warm water. And a prerequisite is the daily feasible physical exertion, which improves blood circulation and promotes the natural processes of cleansing the body, and also prevents the stagnation of bile.

Polyps in the gallbladder - treatment methods

If the size of these neoplasms and their number allow not to resort to surgical intervention, then conservative therapies are applied, which provide for drug treatment with drugs that contribute to the dissolution of cholesterol accumulations and prevent their further growth. Also, to eliminate the stagnation of bile, preparations of choleretic action are used. If there is concomitant cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), anti-inflammatory drugs are used.

Drug therapy is quite a long process (sometimes treatment lasts for several years), and is always used in combination with a special diet. If conservative methods do not bring the desired result, then the gallbladder is usually completely removed (the operation is called cholecystectomy). However, such intervention does not eliminate the cause of the pathology, therefore, in the absence of this body, it is necessary to continue to follow the dietary recommendations.

There are also methods of removing polyps with organ preservation (they are used extremely rarely), but their consequences may be unpredictable due to the integrity of the bladder membrane.

How to eat with a polyp (polyps) in the gallbladder?

The nutritional requirements for such a pathology (as, indeed, for all other diseases of this organ) are prescribed in a diet called the “Treatment Table No. 5”. It imposes restrictions not only on the diet, but also on the diet.

The basic requirements of such a diet are as follows:

  • fractional food intake, in which you need to eat often (five to six times a day) at regular time intervals in small portions,
  • food should only be warm, because both hot and cold dishes have a negative effect on the digestive system,
  • the total number of kilocalories consumed should not be more than 2000 - 2500,
  • Proteins (like fats) should be about 70 grams, carbohydrates - from 300 (preferably) to 400 (maximum) grams,
  • the menu must be coordinated with the attending physician or dietician, since the diet may change depending on the current state of the patient,
  • daily fluid intake is two liters,
  • before meals, it is recommended to drink a glass of water or herbal-based decoction,
  • food can only be cooked in three ways: by steaming, baking or boiling (you can not fry in any case),
  • for better digestion of food, it is better to either grate or grind in another way.

The purpose of this diet is to ensure a normal digestive process and facilitate the excretion and outflow of bile. In addition, this diet is an excellent prevention of numerous diseases of the liver and gallbladder.
