For those suffering with frequent painful attacks like me here is something you may want to try. I tried changing diet alone cutting out most fats and dairy and that was working moderately well with frequent bloating so I was asking the ladies in my hypothyroid group what might help with bloating after meals and one suggested magnesium. Most of us are deficient and it aids in the breakdown of fats, proteins and carbs among other things. I've been taking a low dose once a day a few hours before supper for two weeks now and i havent hada single bout of bloating and no gallbladder attacks. I even had pizza two days ago! Before that would have been impossible without an inevitable gallbladder attack. Certainly worth a try if you are looking for something to help.

      I picked up mine at a health food store but regular drug stores will have it as well.

    thank you Shalaya .... I shall be buying some magnesium now ... I am due to have my GB removed next week, but I've been concerned that my diet won't ever be able to go back to what it used to be - the magnesium would appear to help greatly.
