dc.description.abstract Digestive diseases have been reported by the CDC as the third largest illness of great economic burden in the United States. The cost of gallbladder disease causing digestive illness has been estimated to be more than a billion of dollars in direct medical care. The disease occurs in 10% of the population and is higher among women and elderly. About 776,000 patients was diagnosed with gallstones in 1984 and 485,000 of these patients received a cholecystectomy. New prevention model consisting of risks management, screening exam, and ultrasound standard procedure were put in place in the hope of better management and prevention of gallstones disease. NHANES III have included ultrasound of the gallbladder has one of the digestive diseases diagnostic component. The procedure is performed to assess abnormalities within the gallbladder more specifically the presence of stones in 20 to 74 year old patients. This research thesis will try to decipher the importance of bile acids in digestion, gallstones formation, its many purposes in human metabolism, its detrimental effect on digestion after cholecystectomy, and its role if any in the development of colorectal cancer. en_US
