Question: Since my gallbladder was taken out I have acquired bad skin problems such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Is there a supplement I can take to simulate the benefit of the gallbladder?

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear Ms

Surgical removal of gall bladder or Cholecystectomy is unrelated to occurrence of any skin condition.
The major function of gall bladder is storage and concentration of bile. In the absence of it the function is taken over by common bile duct. There is no need for boosting up of its function.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care
Best regards

I have vitiligo . the only normal skin pigment I have left is on both cheeks on my face . I want to get rid of it permanently . There has to be something available to help me ! I have been to a dermatologist in both Wheeling , WV and in Pittsburgh , PA . The one in Wheeling did several Fraxal ( ??) lasure treatments and then said he was done because the results weren t worth doing more . The one in Pittsburgh gave much false hope That was in the middle of March as of yet I STILL have not been given the prescriptions she recommended . They were basically for skin cancer , not approved by the FDA and both medicare and my insurance refused to pay for those reasons . today I got a call saying since they can t get them to approve the drugs good bye your on your own unless you pay for them yourself otherwise , we re done with you . the drugs were close to $300.00 with no guarantee of helping
