A:

In most cases, gallstones are caused by excessive amounts of cholesterol in the bile that is stored in the gallbladder. The cholesterol hardens to form stone-like substances. You can reduce your risk of gallstones by maintaining a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity.
