He says he is examining the occurrence of gall bladder prob- lems in city residents and if his suspicions are correct he'll in- itiate a further Investigation into the reasons. The physician was one of three internal medicine spec- ialists interviewed by The Her- ald. All of them said they have "impressions" that Lethbridge has a high incidence of gall bladder problems. "But we cannot prove the physician who is interested in such a study said. "First, we have to confirm our impres- sions that Lethbridge does have a higher incidence. Our impres- sions may be According to -figures supplied by Lethbridge Municipal Hospi- tal and St. Michael's General Hospital, gall bladder removal operations have increased over tbe years, from 2S6 in 1969 to 292 in 1970, 294 in 1971 and 135 in tbe first six months this year. "We also have the impres- sion that there is a high inci- dence of gall -bladder prob- said St. Michael's ad- ministrator Sister Mary Claris- sa. "However, the increases have not been large and may ocly correspond with popula- tion growth." Gall bladder is a small, pear- shaped organ situated on the under surface of the right lobe of the liver. Its principal ac- tivities are to store the bile ex- creted by the liver for digest- ive purposes. It is not an essential organ and its removal by operation does not deprive the body of any vital function, according to 'internal medicine specialists. Tbe medical profession finds gall bladder problems a chal- lenge because up to this day there have been no satisfactory explanations as to why a par- ticular person should be struck by them. "All we know is that the in- cidence is higher among people over 40, higher among fat peo- ple, and higher among women who are one spec- ialist said. "It is also higher among Western people than Or- iental people so eating habits may have something to do with it." But a perfectly healthy young man can be struck with the disease, he pointed out. If such a study can be done, it will be useful to world medi- cine, the specialists said.
