hi, i know this is alot, but i realy need some help and advice please.
i had a hida scan below are the results: it also shows that it could be acalculous cholecystitis/gallbladder dyskinesisi:
hida is excreted by the liver normally
no entergogastric reflux after administration of standard fatty meal, prolonged latent period 8 min (normal 2min) and
subsequent poor gallbladder contraction with calculated GBEF of 8% (normal 35%)
conclusion: findings would be consistent with acalculous cholecystitis/gallbladder dyskinesisi, findings do not support sphincter of oddi dysfunction.
diagnosed with h.pylori, gastritis,deodenitis and erosions. would these be due to the gallbladder not functioning wel causing the h.pylori bacteria to spread and do more damage?
i had an ultrasound of the gallbladder, bilary duct, pancreas they were fine.
had mildly raised amylase levels for months but has come down, so unsure of it being chronic pancreatitis, the gastroentologist ordered:
faecal elastase test which was in the normal range 230
normal pancreatic function (>200 ug/g)
(norm range between 200-500 ug/g)
what does it seem like whats going on?
how are acalculous cholecystitis/gallbladder dyskinesisi caused? i heard they are almost symptoms of other diseases/illnesses like muscle diseases or pancreatitis
i constantly have joint pains especially my back, weakness of muscles, brainfog, dizzyness, anxiety, also have had eye inflamation ( which has been resolved after months with steroid drops). then on top intermittant mild stomach pains,burns,bloatings, symptoms of gastritis,duedenitis (my stomach issues began after taking 3 week course of antibiotics due to a tooth extraction which was over 8 months ago). heart palptations, have had a slight drop in bp, my heart rates slower then usual,, at one point my sugar levels were very low, had hyperglycemia symptoms( these symptoms are ok now), also have mildly raised liver enzymes for many years (ALT levels, diagnosed with fatty liver). have lost weight (maybe due to change in diet). got white dots on my finger nails. other blood results also showing abnormal bone profile and was positive for antimitochondrial antibody (twice).
i have slightly high cholestrol ,which im doing wel in lowering,
i have been drinking alcohol and smoking in the past but socially, ive stopped both since being ill,
i have a past(2years ago) of car whiplash injury which the back pains are still causing me problems
also having investigation into possible prostratitis soon.
i need advise to what i should look into?
i do find if i avoid sugars and fatty foods it eases my stomach symptoms totally, i did have diahrea/ pale colour for many months, i took probiotics acidophilis for 3 weeks and ever since my stomach has gotten better and no more diahrea, i am vitamin c,d, calcium, b complex, zinc,
could i have some form of autoimmune ?
could it be possible my pancreas is causing my gallbladder to not function wel as i have no gallstones?
my health issues could be possibly seperate issues from one another?
i am waiting for my gastro specialist to get back to me.
what advice can anyone give me please, i am keeping strong as all i can do is wait and i believe my bodies slowly recovering but not significant improvments, im eating carfully, drinking water, avoiding wheat,sugars,fats like milk, red meat, this is all helping
im 32 years old, 11 stones (weight still going down), 5ft8 from uk.
