Urso

Why is this drug prescribed?

Bile is released by the gall bladder to aid the digestion of fats.
Both of these actions decrease the amount of cholesterol that passes into the bile.
Gallstones occur in the gall bladder as a result of too much cholesterol, or too few bile salts within the bile.
It consists of cholesterol dissolved within bile salts.
It is known to reduce the production of cholesterol by the liver and to reduce the absorption of cholesterol from the gut.
It occurs naturally in bile and can be prescribed to dissolve gallstones.
Since Urso is a bile acid itself, it increases the level of bile acids within the bile.
The combination of these two factors reverses the imbalance and stops the cholesterol separating out of the bile.
The gallstones then begin to dissolve.
The imbalance causes excess cholesterol to separate out of the bile and form stones.
The liver produces bile which is stored in the gall bladder.
This is a useful alternative for people who cannot have, or wish to avoid surgery.
Treatment is continued for up to two years, depending on the size of the stone.
Urso causes gallstones to dissolve by a mechanism that is not fully understood.
Urso is a chemical called a bile acid.
