Hey Doc Sutter and every one else. I have a question, on occasion(especially when I'm having celiac reactions) my liver area will begin to gurgle. I will feel pain all the way into my back, and it will feel some times like some thing is interrupting my blood pressure around my aorta or possibly the portal vein in the liver. It seems to happen WAY less when I'm not eating grain(including grain fed meat, eggs, dairy ext). Now when I search around on the internet for this symptom, it seems as if modern medicine thinks it's insane.
They seem to think that gurgling coming from just under the right rib is the intestine and not the liver/gallbladder/biliary tree? I find this strange considering how when they check with their hands to see if your liver is swollen, they press on the exact spot I feel gurgling coming from. When I look at human anatomy however; I see the duodenum and I realize that it passed very close to this same spot. So is this the only spot the gurgling is coming from? Or is it possible it's only the hepatic area, or maybe both? Can gurgling even happen in the liver.
Now I definitely know for a fact that liver flushing will effect if not treat/cure food allergies. So if celiac disorder triggers this gurgling, and celiac is directly related to liver function could it be that the the lack of digestion of gluten causes the bile ducts to swell/plug and the gurgling is bile backing up? Or maybe certain parasites like grain?
So let me summarize my questions:
1) Is hepatic gurgling real?
2) Whats the connection between gluten and gurgling in the upper right quadrant?
3) Is the gurgling possibly parasites going for the gluten?
4) If previous true, why do parasites like gluten?
5) If hepatic gurgling is real, why the hell hasn't modern medicine figured this one out? And why exactly would they not want to believe the liver gurgles?
