Cholecystitis – a Threat to Bodybuilder’s Health
Extensive training often leads to development of various infectious diseases. Every bodybuilder needs to be well-informed about them in order to ensure prevention and proper treatment. As an infection travels through the body it often finds gall bladder as a perfect refuge environment. Which causes cholecyctitis. The bladder gets inflamed and aches. However, the pain in the right upper quadrant (or the right flank) can be felt only in severe cases. In the rest of cases there may be no pain, but the gallbladder will poison the bile with myriads of morbific bacteria.
Can Cholecystitis be Cured?
Cholecystitis can be completely cured, but the treatment process requires patience. The treatment takes up to 4 months and requires complete termination of physical activities for this period.
Symptoms of Cholecystitis
Usually doctors can easily diagnose if a patient has cholecystitis. The symptoms are very distinct: severe pain in the right side of the body, fever, profound sweating, nausea, vomiting. However, in bodybuilder’s case, cholecystitis may not display such vivid symptoms but lack symptoms and be rather unnoticeable.
How to Detect Cholecystitis?
Detection of cholecystitis largely depends on the bodybuilder himself (herself). Bodybuilders need to consult a gastroenterologist at least once every six months. Those days, doctors from this area of medicine are equipped with a very accurate equipment called ultrasound scanner, which can present on the monitor screen the “live” information about the condition of the internal organs. Even a minor inflammation of the gallbladder can be flawlessly detected.
Is Cholecystitis Really Dangerous for Bodybuilders?
If you are suffering from chronic cholecystitis start treatment immediately. This disease presents a real danger to bodybuilder’s health. Energetic bloodstream can spread the infection through the entire gastrointestinal tract! Dysbacteriosis, enteritis, intestinal pain, inflammation of appendicitis – this is just a short list of potential hazards.
