Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Gallbladder is a major organ for digestion of food especially fat containing food. Hence any gallbladder disease like gallstones can cause such symptoms. Blood sugar can also go up from gallbladder inflammation.

Gastritis or stomach inflammation from viral infection is another common cause. Liver disease also needs to be checked. Please get liver function test and ultrasound of the abdomen for further evaluation.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
