Our expert says:
The gall bladder squirts gall into the bowel with every meal to assist in digesting fatty food, the gallbladder won't ever get overly full. The gall bladder will only break if it is obstructed by a gall stone or if it has gallstones in it and develops a severe infection. Then you will have severe pain in the R side with fever. Laxatives will have no effect on the function of the gall bladder. One rather needs to eat fruit and whole grain foods every day and drink 6 glasses of water, which will keep the bowel moving, than taking laxatives. It is not neccesary to give a child laxatives unless he or she is really constipated. Children should only eat sweets in moderation and preferably after a meal ( small portion) and not until they feel nauseous as this is bad for the pancreas.
