Proactol with gallstones to maintain weight ?

User Profile
Is it effective to take "Proactol" only when i eat from out as of pizza's, mcdonalds. does it help to maintain your weight and not gain any pound next day whenver you end up over eating. due to gallstones i am losing weight consistently with low fat diet, but few times a week i do eat lot of fatty food too and always end up gaing one or two pounds next day.

is proactol safe to take in gallstone condition and most importantly does it help in maintaining my weight and not let it gain a single pound whenever i overeat?

thank you.

Hi, Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

Proactol is an organic plant extract and is not known to result in the side effect of producing or worsening of the gall stones.

However, importantly, you shouldn’t consume too much fat in your diet as this is detrimental and can result in worsening of the gall stones.

Ursodeoxycholic acid is known to result in the dissolution of the gall stones and you can consult a gastroenterologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
