Gallstones

Gallstones are small, hard stones, made from cholesterol, bile pigment and calcium salts. Gallstones become common as we age. In patients over 50 years of age the prevalence is 25-30%. They are more common in women, in people who are overweight or lose weight rapidly, and in those with a family history of gallstones. They are also more common in people with Crohn's disease.
