Yazmin and Yaz birth control users have reported Yaz gallbladder disease and problems such as gallstones and gallbladder inflammation. These Yaz side effects are serious, and often result in sometimes unbearable abdominal pain, as well as other symptoms, which can lead to infection, and can potentially be life threatening. If gallbladder problems persist, treatment usually involves the removal of the gallbladder and a permanent change in diet for the victim.
Yaz Gallbladder disease cases are split into two types:
- Gallbladder Inflammation (cholecystitis), which causes abdominal pain in the upper right side or upper middle of the abdomen. Symptoms may also include jaundice (yellowing of the skin), nausea and fever.
- Gallstones (cholelithiasis), where stones (which can get to be the size of golf balls) form within the gallbladder, causing abdominal pain (which can come and go and vary in intensity), fever, nausea and jaundice. More cramping pain can occur if the stones block the bile or cystic ducts in the gallbladder.
Diagnosis of gall bladder disease
Gallbladder problems are diagnosed through a variety of methods, including: Abdominal or endoscopic ultrasound, CT scans, ERCP, HIDA scans, blood tests or x-rays.
Treatment of gall bladder disease
In both cases of gallbladder inflammation as well as gallstones, surgery to remove the gallbladder may be ultimately necessary for some victims.
