Kimkins Dr. Mark on Gallbladders

"Dr." Mark posted an answer to a question about gallbladders which has us scratching our heads. He apparently does not know what the gallbladder is or how it works, yet attempts to issue a statement as if he is an expert, or even, *gasp*, a doctor.

His response:

Re:Gall Bladder question 3 Hours, 43 Minutes ago
GB - keep it if you can. Sorry if it is already out.

The truth about the GB.

The GB is mearly a storage sac for bile. I has a small duct that opens to the first part of the intestines after the stomach.

Bile is a substance produced by the Liver that emulisifies fat. (dawn dish washing liquid takes grease out of your way)

FAT TY foods leave the stomach and it gets the message to send out a squirt...bigger the fat...bigger the squirt.

Emulisification breaks up the fat into very small particals which the small intestine can easily digest.

When the gall bladder is removed, the "in tube" is connected to the "out tube" and now you have a slow drip of bile constantly as produced.


After this surgery you will never _meta_bolize large quantities of fat well. You have to change your diet or indigestion and loose stool will follow every high fat meal. Your GB can no longer "squirt" for those larger quantities.

GBs don't get screwed up from too litte use, rather too much. Glands - all glands for the most part, like to hang out full until called upon (they are quite lazy) and when worked, they just like to work for a little while, then fill back up and go to sleep.

Lower fat diet (that fits here) and digestive enzymes with fatty foods will help.

Dr. Mark"

The problem with his statement is hopefully obvious to those he is attending.. but if it is not, read on....

The gallbladder is an ORGAN
The thyroid is a GLAND (Mark previously referred to the thyroid as an organ)

and No, "Dr" Mark they are NOT interchangeable terms!


(Science: anatomy) a digestive organ which stores bile (produced in the liver), used in the digestion and absorption of fats in the duodenum. a muscular sac attached to the liver that secretes bile and stores it until needed for digestion.


A butterfly-shaped endocrine gland in the neck that is found on both sides of the trachea (windpipe). It secretes the hormone thyroxine which controls the rate of metabolism.

Much worse than making false claims about ones weight loss, giving inaccurate medical advice can kill people (faster). This madness must end.

You know this is very scarey. I have had my gallbladder removed and I have no trouble eating fatty foods.

I love his "scientific" descriptions on things. It's unbelievably inaccurate and very scarey.

He should have a warning label on all his advice. Don't take it!!!

Since my gall bladder surgery, I seem to have an intolerance for dairy. I have horrible painful gas followed by diarrhea-type waste immediately after nearly every meal. I've minimized my dairy to see if that helps. It really has, now I only need to establish how much dairy is acceptable for me. I had already tried not eating fatty foods, which didn't work. Now, it seems, I can eat fatty foods but no dairy. What he's describing is LACTOSE intolerance. Sure, I stay away from the really greasy stuff now, that stuff gave me gas any way.

Don't know how I missed this! Maybe someone should ask him how he explains this:
