Background and Aims: This Gastrointestinal complications are common after cholecystectomy (open and laparoscopy), including anorexia, heartburn, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, flatulence and abdominal distension, and diarrhea. Currently use of low-fat regimen is suggested. The purpose was to determine the benefit of low-fat diet in patients undergone cholecystectomy.
Materials and Methods: In this interventional study that was done as a randomized clinical trial, 80 consecutive patients undergone cholecystectomy in Loghman Hospital in 2019 were enrolled and randomly assigned to receive either low-fat (25%) or routine regimen. After two months, the results were assessed by comparing the responses to a questionnaire including anorexia, heartburn, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, flatulence plus abdominal distension, and diarrhea as items, with total score of 21 points.
Results: The results in this study demonstrated that 60% of the patients showed significantly different response according to Chi-Square test (P=0.041). Age, sex, and obesity had statistically significant effect on results (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: Altogether, according to the obtained results, it may be concluded that low-fat diet consumption is beneficial in patients undergone cholecystectomy and it may be practiced according to the patient’s condition and physician’s opinion.
