Digestive Disorders

Never Full

03/02/2009

Question:

Since having my gall bladder removed, I can never get full. I can eat a full meal, and feel completely empty. Is this caused from the removal of my gall bladder. I`m 42 yrs. old, with no health issues, that I`m aware of and I`m very active.

Answer:

No, I do not feel it is from your gallbladder. You are, however, probably digesting more efficiently which may explain it somewhat. You might consider checking your thyroid levels.
