My Chiropractor just told me the same thing! I had my gallbladder out a bit over a year ago, and have put on at least 20lbs since. I have been taking digestive enzymes, probiotics and senna leaf every day! Just started taking thyroid supplements thinking it might be that! I am on vitacost.com this morning researching the bile salts and have put my order in. I hope they work. So tired of being fat with no energy!
