The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped sac located under the liver. Its purpose is to hold bile from the liver to be released when needed for the digestion of fats. Biliary colic can be caused by gallstones, most commonly composed of cholesterol substances, gallbladder sludge, or functional gallbladder disorders. Symptoms of gallbladder disorders are nausea, vomiting, and pain, especially after eating high-fat foods. You may wish to refer to the Digestive Disorders page of this guide.
