Dizzy/Gallbladder ?
I am set to have my gallbladder out in the next week and consider myself a healthy 33 year old male. Not overweight, blood pressure, cholesterol are all good. I  have been getting dizzy only after eating. This is a new symptom though in my months trying to figure out what is wrong with me. I have only been experiencing this over the last week or so. It kind of worries me and I have been wondering if this is related to my gallbladder. I have had 2 ultrasounds, 1 hida/cck, and plenty of bloodwork. My blood only showed an elevated billirubin, everything else was normal. My hida returned a 70% ejection but the CCK injection triggered the same pain I have been going through over the last 2 months. My ultrasound showed some gallbladder sludge. Is this dizziness really related to my gallbladder? I am hoping gallbladder removal will bring everything back to normal. Any info is greatly appreciated.

People with gallstones generally have the best outcomes with gallbladder surgery.  People without gallstones may, or may not, get relief with surgery.  If the dizziness persists after surgery, you might talk to your gastro doc about a gastric emptying study.  Dumping Syndrome means that your stomach empties its contents faster than most other people.  That results in a very fast rise and then fall in blood sugar, and can result in dizziness after eating.  You may be able to control the dizziness by eating more frequent, but smaller meals similar to a diet followed by people with diabetes.  The object is to keep a steady blood sugar level and avoid big spikes and drops that make you dizzy.  Best of luck on your surgery.  :-)
