Gallstones are crystalline compounds usually made up of calcium salts (which makes them visible on X-rays so yippee here, either you have gallstones or you don't), cholesterol (a major component of gallstones) and bile.
Gallstones are produced when there is an imbalance in the components that make up bile acids, which then allows cholesterol particles from these bile acids to group together forming stones.
Some individuals are prone to gallstones because of their genetic make-up, but diet definitely plays a role.
